In 2013 the US Department of Defense & Veterans Brain Injury commission completed research using IM – the paper is titled Effects of Interactive Metronome Therapy on Cognitive Functioning After Blast-Related Brain Injury: A Randomized Controlled Pilot Trial. This studied concluded that “the addition of IM therapy to SRC (standard rehabilitation care) appears to have a positive effect on neuropsychological outcomes on soldiers who have sustained mild-to-moderate TBI and have persistent cognitive complaints after the period for expected recovery has passed.” More simply stated the study indicates greater improvements and were acquired more quickly. The US Veteran’s Administration has since acquired the equipment and is in process of integrating IM into their rehabilitation programs.
