Neurologic Music Therapy (“NMT”) is an effective form of rehabilitative care supported by over 30 years of clinical research. NMT is a broad term used for a range of interventions that include music or rhythmic elements to improve gait, mobility, and function.
One type of NMT that is particularly effective for people with brain injuries and degenerative diseases is Rhythmic Auditory Stimulation (“RAS”). During RAS, you listen to a rhythmic stimulus, like music. The rhythm engages both the auditory and motor systems your brain.
The synchronization of these two systems in the brain can support structural changes to the brain via neuroplasticity. These have been shown to support people with walking difficulties and common gait challenges.
In collaboration with the Accelerated Cure Project for Multiple Sclerosis, this concert is the brainchild of Stubhy Pandav, lead singer of Lucky Boys Confusion and a person living with MS.
MedRhythms is a sponsor of this event.
MedRhythms has a robust pipeline of novel, next-generation digital therapeutics in active development. We aim to bring these solutions to a wide range of patients living with neurologic impairments and walking difficulties that can be improved through auditory-motor entrainment.
