POSITIVE AGING - STAYING ENGAGED

​"I had a huge burst of energy the day after this appointment..."


PARKINSON'S 

​LET'S TAKE BACK CONTROL WHERE WE CAN


"I'm steadier.  My meds seem to be working better.  Not so much variance." 


"I'm having more episodes where I feel agile."


"I had a huge burst of energy the day after this appointment.  My meds felt 'on'."


"I sat down to play the piano and I was surprisingly good.  I was able to go faster with more agility."


"I had a big surprise in that I could do all of the machines [at the gym] with more weights and longer duration . . . it was my best session in two years."

THERE ARE NO AGE LIMITATIONS.  ACCOMMODATIONS CAN BE MADE FOR WHEELCHAIRS & WALKERS 


In addition, IM technology has been used by those suffering from these challenges:


Traumatic Brain Injury   **  Cerebral Vascular Accident  **  Lou Gehrig's Disease (ALS)  **  Balance Disorders  **  Multiple Sclerosis  **  Incomplete Spinal Cord Injury  **  Decline in Function  **  Developmental Disorders


IM technology can aid those who have motor planning and sequencing challenges, speech and language delays, motor and sensory disorders, learning deficits, and various cognitive and physical difficulties.  


Gains in motor planning, rhythmicity, timing and sequencing lead to improvement in these areas:  Balance & Gait, Strength & Endurance, Coordination, Motor Skills for Independent Living, Attention & Concentration, Language Processing, Behavior (Aggression & Impulsivity), Fine & Gross Motor Skills, and Independence with Prosthetic Limbs.  


"[In this controlled study] computer directed rhythmic movement training was found to improve the motor signs of Parkinsonism."

SENIOR DRIVERS

FEELING COMPETENT OR UNCERTAIN BEHIND THE WHEEL?


Consider for a moment what is required to be a SAFE, RESPONSIBLE DRIVER


Mental Stamina


Quick Decision Making


Initiation of Change


Ability to Process Visual Information Efficiently


Motor Coordination


Focus and Concentration in Spite of Distractions


Impulse Control (to Avoid Over Corrections)


Ability to Time Movement


And, the confidence to do all of these things well.


There are many ways Interactive Metronome (IM) training can help senior drivers (or any driver).  One way is by helping to build better driving skills.  Being able to drive gives seniors independence and enables them to be involved in the larger community.  


There are no age limitations when it comes to benefiting from IM, the program is customized to fit each person's abilities.  


The participant performs non-aerobic hand and foot exercises to a steady beat heard through headphones.  Responses are measured instantaneously and the accuracy of the movement (to 1,000th of a second) is displayed.  By responding to the information displayed, the brain is challenged to plan, sequence and execute more effectively.  Processing speed is sharpened and over/under responses are smoothed out.
