MUSIC THERAPY & REHABILITATION.

Adaptive instruments everyone can enjoy.

Progress.

Adaptive instruments let you deliver the program you've always wanted to provide.

Break barriers to participation & progress.


Your platform for patient-centered care.

Our platform gives you the expression and interaction options to achieve your therapeutic and rehabilitative goals, including motor skill rehabilitation, cognitive stimulation, emotional expression, speech therapy, social interaction, and connection.

Rehabilitation.

Accelerate recovery with flexible, personalized tools that adapt as your patients progress through rehabilitation.

Music therapy.

Overcome the limitations of "one size fits all" technology that limits expression and access for people with diverse and complex disabilities.

Match physical capabilities.

Tailor how instruments respond to individual abilities, from fine to gross motor skills and everything in between to traditional and extended vocal techniques.

Support cognitive and developmental needs.

Customize interaction to match cognitive and developmental abilities. Allow clients to set their own pace, learn, and express themselves naturally and intuitively.


Adapt interfaces as your patients progress.

Update the functionality of interfaces as your patients’ capabilities and challenges evolve. Support each stage of their rehabilitation with tools that can be as simple or challenging as needed.

Keep patients motivated. Sustain momentum.

Reduce frustration and stagnation from repetition. Modify interaction methods and choose personalized music and sounds that your clients love to keep them engaged and motivated.


Encourage play and exploration.

Designs that are beautiful, safe, and practical. Modify surfaces to encourage interaction and exploration.

Accommodate sensory preferences.

Change the feel of surfaces to suit sensory preferences, and choose sounds and music that accommodate neurodivergence or sensitivity to particular sounds.

People express themselves in personal, nuanced, and sophisticated ways using gestures, movements, and voice.

But too many "accessible" instruments still underestimate what people can do, locking them out and limiting their progress.

Now, you can change this. Finally, people can express themselves in ways that truly reflect their unique capabilities.
