Rhythm-based music listening therapy can have profound effects on the brain, helping to activate and create new neural pathways. For patients with brain disorders such as Alzheimer’s, this could be a very positive intervention to help.
Darby, a 62-year old woman dealing with Alzheimer’s, hadn’t been moving or exercising for six months, and had very little energy. Her husband Chris, an accomplished piano player and believer in the power of sound, contacted Nacho Arimany, co-creator of inTime, the rhythm-based music listening therapy from Advanced Brain Technologies.
The video below was sent in by Chris, showing Darby using inTime and the WAVES™ multi-sensory bone-conduction headphones for the very first time. According to him, as soon as Darby put on her headphones, she started dancing non-stop, and could be dancing for hours.
Nacho, a master ethno-percussionist and composer, said “I can’t wait to see the results and Darby’s evolution. This is one of those days that you feel that all the efforts and challenges along the path are worth it. Realizing that there is nothing better than teaming with great individuals and professionals so we can offer tools of transformation and well-being to families and individuals around the world.”
Darby will be using inTime once a day for eight weeks.
