Brian Eliason, Owner, Eliason School of Music, is urging Boston-based neurologic music therapy (NMT) company MedRhythms, Inc. to come up with an app so its services can reach more patients.

"Their method is so revolutionary but more people need to be aware of NMT and be accessible to everyone who might need it," said Eliason.

MedRhythms recently launched out of Spaulding Rehabilitation Hospital, an innovative hospital in Boston, which allowed the company to grow and develop inpatient, outpatient, and in-home programs.

Unlike other music therapists who view music as a social science, the MedRhythms approach utilizes neuroscience with interventions deeply rooted in neuroscience research.

As described by MedRhythms CEO Brian Harris, their innovation works help people recover gait by using the guitar to play a specific rhythm and playing a downbeat every time the patient takes a step.

He cited the case of their patient George Tse who had been getting physical therapy for five or six days a week for three weeks and was walking 40 feet with a cane. After one NMT session, Tse was walking 250 feet without a cane.

"I was walking with a cane very slowly with the help of my physical therapist. Then Brian started to play a tune on his guitar, and something clicked. I started walking with the rhythm. After a few minutes I didn't need my cane anymore," said Tse.
