Interactive Metronome

Interactive Metronome

IM-Home is the Interactive Metronome (IM) for home-use. IM has been used for years to help you reach your brain and body’s full potential and now you do not need to go to the clinic to get the benefits.

Rosita Dominates the Links with IM

We always talk about our success stories, and for good reason. We recently had a wonderful woman named Rosita who saw the success her husband had with IM training for Parkinson's disease, and she wanted to try it for herself. So, with the Masters now behind us, we wanted to share Rosita's golf gains with IM-Home®. After all, you don't have to be 21 to dominate the links. Our Providers are always working hard to treat individuals looking to improve various deficits and conditions, and some who ar  just looking for an edge in daily life.
