27 Jan Rhythmic Auditory Stimulation (RAS)
There are over 50 clinical research studies demonstrating improvements in movement when using RAS (Rhythmic Auditory Stimulation).
Specifically, walking speed has been shown to be higly correlated to fall risk. A study showed that each 0.1 m/s increase in walking speed was correlated to a 7% decrease in fall risk (Verghese et al., 2009).
Randomized Control Trials in multiple indications, including stroke, MS, Cerebral Palsy, and PD, demonstrated improved walking when RAS was delivered. (Suh et al., 2014; Conklyn, et al., 2010; Kim, et al., 2012; Bukowska, et al., 2016).
BETTER THAN STANDARD OF CARE
RAS is better than standard of care, as shown in RCT that yielded better outcomes than physical therapy in stroke patients (Thaut, 1997).
