How to benefit from interactive music and rhythm in a life with ADHD
Difficult to keep focus at school?
Holding an inmu in your hands and feeling the vibrations have an arousal regulating effect. It stimulates the brain to stay focused. The different tactile structures on the inmu invites to touch and fiddle. The inmu response with new variations in the music by each new movement. This helps keeping the brain focused.
No need for headset
The music is designed to be non-disturbing and have been successfully tested in schools for use during lessons. You just touch the inmu and the music keeps on playing until you leave it still.
Being rewarded with music
Fiddling with an inmu rewards you with a musical experience. You can dive into the music and the music will keep on surprising you as it unfolds. Unlike listing to music in a headset you get a feeling of being in control and be the creator of the music.
Southing vibrations that follows your movements
Give the inmu a hug and feel the vibrations spreading in your body. The unique vibrating element of an inmu make you connect to it. It feels like it is alive. Holding the inmu in your hands, under your feet or on your body helps you feel yourself. It make you feel safe and helps connecting with the surroundings.
Finding peace before going to sleep
With ADHD often comes sleep challenges. When the inmu feels your breathing the music turns meditative. Let yourself be embraced by the soothing music. Together with the soft vibrations it make you feel sleepy and help you to find peace in both body and mind.
Case: Finding ease and improving sleep with inmuJOY
We have been following Emilia and her inmuJOY for over a year. Now she is 10 years old. She has ADHD and has had great challenges falling asleep and staying asleep. Emilia was selected to participate in testing inmuJOY with families who have special challenges with e.g. autism and ADHD. In addition, Emilia was offered a series of web guides with small exercises that she had to do daily to strengthen her concentration and get more calm in her body.
After a year, when inmuJOY has become a regular part of Emilia’s everyday life, she still benefits greatly from inmuJOY’s sensory stimuli. She cuddles with it, listens to the music and enjoys the vibrations – especially when she is going to sleep.
“It makes it a lot easier for me to relax and fall asleep.”
How to use inmu to fall asleep:
- Find a quiet place – a good chair, sofa or bed.
- Turn off the phone, computer and other distracting objects.
- Take the inmu in your hands and experience the music.
- The music follows your movements:
Hug the inmu or touch it gently.
- Breath slowly and concentrate on the music and the vibrations.
