Evaluation of rhythmic abilities
BAASTA is a battery of mobile tests allowing the evaluation of perceptual and sensorimotor rythmic abilities.
It is used to detect deficits in rhythmic abilities using patented measurement methods and is intended for researchers and caregivers to assess motor synchronization abilities of their healthy individuals as well as patients.
How does it work?
Individuals perform a series of exercises specifically designed to assess their rhythmic abilities such as:
- Cued tapping to sounds
- Cued tapping to music
- Detection of anisochronies
These tests are likely to be repeated several times with a long interval between sessions in order to measure the improvement or deterioration of the participants' abilities.
Using music to boost walking
beatMove is an assistive musical walking application for people suffering from walking disorders.
At the moment, our scientific studies mostly concern Parkinson's disease. They show a real contribution of music on:
- The walking quality of individuals
- The patients’ fear of falling which is greatly reduced
- Enhanced motivation to practice physical activity
Who do we help?
To this day beatMove is developed for people suffering from Parkinson's disease. New studies are in progress, aiming to validate the benefits of our solution for individuals suffering from multiple sclerosis, diabetes and obesity.
Beat Workers & Rhythm Workers
Training of rhythmic abilities
Beat Workers is a mainstream smartphone rhythm game developed with NaturalPad.
A clinical version, RhythmWorkers, is used in research to show the impact of rhythm rehabilitation on health.
How does it work?
The first studies on RhythmWorkers has shown an improvement in rhythmic and functional abilities, in people with Parkinson's disease but also in children with Attention Deficit Disorder with or without Hyperactivity (ADHD).
