How Well-Tuned™ Works

The Institute for Music and Neurologic Function (IMNF) makes it easy to provide a loved one with the benefits of music. Our Well-Tuned™: Music Players for Health Program brings therapeutic music into your home. You can register for yourself or a loved one online or by fax, email or postal mail.

Once you register, send us an MP3 player/iPod or you can purchase one from us. New iPod shuffles are available from Apple®, and MP3 players/iPods could be purchased from Best Buy® and Radio Shack®. Our music therapists and other specialists create customized playlists incorporating input from you and your loved ones. These playlists are loaded onto MP3 players/iPods so you can connect with music you love, improving your overall health and well-being. We then send the iPod back to you with headphones and an AC adapter to easily recharge the iPod.

Playlists can be created for individuals with Alzheimer’s disease and other forms of dementia, Parkinson’s disease, depression or anxiety. Research demonstrates that individuals who are connected with their favorite music often will have reduced depression and anxiety as well as a better mood.

The music gives me energy and it makes me feel good. I don’t think about the bad stuff or how far I came from. I just do the best I can.
