Sensory Motor Integration
Sensory Motor Integration (SMI) can help increase reaction time and motor skills. SMI is strongly researched in the world of developmental delays and can be adapted to affect many different disorders. BITS is a touchscreen technology that has a wide variety of therapeutic activities helping to integrate motor and sensory pathways in a variety of areas throughout the brain.
BITS measures reaction time and sensory-motor timing. It is used to therapeutically stimulate hand-eye coordination and sensory-motor integration.
Interactive Metronome® (IM) is believed to improve the resolution and efficiency of an individual’s internal brain clock(s) and temporal processing. In turn, it is hypothesized that this results in more efficient brain connectivity, communication, and synchronization via increased integrity of the brains white matter tract communication system, producing more efficient communication between critical brain networks. In particular, research and theory suggest that IM training increases the efficacy of the parietal-frontal brain network, the brain network most associated with general intellectual functioning, working memory, controlled attention and executive functions.
