EEG spectroanalysis measurements have been conducted at the institute, a CD
is produced which is tailored to the individual needs of the patient. Once this
has been done, the patient should listen to the music via headphones while working
with the therapist or carer to regain lost functions. Listening to the music
while working on lost movement patterns reinforces the effect of the music and
helps the treatment to take hold. The patient should work with the CD two to
four times a day for 10 to 30 minutes at a time. If used regularly every day,
it can lead to improvements in a relatively short time.
earpieces should cover the entire ear. The equipment should have a frequency
range up to 20,000 Hz. Wireless headphones are ideal because there is no
cord to hamper the patient during physical exercises. Please do not use
infrared headphones, because they usually only transmit frequencies up to
Before putting on
the headphones, please check the volume, which should be low to medium. If
the volume is too high, this could damage the patient's hearing.
Please make sure the left-hand earpiece is on
the left ear and the right-hand earpiece on the right ear. There will be
markings on the headphones to indicate which side is which.
It is usually necessary to perform the exercises
with the help of a therapist, who will ensure that the movement and speech
patterns are performed correctly and precisely. Carers who wish to practise
the exercises with the patient should at least get appropriate training or
All treatment must
be discussed with the physician in charge.
It is important to define goals only in terms of
small steps, to mark their attainment and communicate and share a sense of
success and achievement with the patient.
motivator is the definition of goals which are of practical benefit to the patient.
For example, rather than simply moving the arm backwards and forwards, it is
more effective to practise moving the arm towards a glass while listening to
the music, so that the patient is soon able to drink unaided again.
All involved should ensure that they think and
speak positively, and create a positive atmosphere. As demonstrated at the
institute, non-verbal information and thought patterns are transmitted in the
delta frequencies. This means that both constructive thoughts and those that
could impact negatively on the patient's motivation are conveyed from the carer
to the patient.
is also important to mention that in the course of treatment, patients with
cerebral damage will typically experience crises that are often clear signs
that the patientís condition is improving. In such cases, carers and
therapists should support the patient and motivate him or her to continue
treatment by means of positive words and thoughts.
on how treatment progresses, it may be beneficial to visit the institute again
after a period of six months to a year, if improvements in the patientís
condition make more advanced steps possible, such as exercises involving more
complex speech and movement patterns. In this case, new measurements will be
taken in order to adapt the CD to the patientís current condition.
wish you great success with your CD.
