Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) is a common neuropsychological disorder affecting 3-7% of all school aged children. About 30-50% of these children continue to have symptoms into adulthood.
ADHD can be described as a persistent or on-going pattern of inattention and/or hyperactivity-impulsivity that gets in the way of daily life or typical development.
With the proper diagnosis and treatment, many of the difficulties associated with ADHD can be significantly reduced and sometimes even eliminated.
What is QbTest?
QbTest is a FDA cleared and a CE marked computer based test that measures the core symptoms associated with ADHD including hyperactivity, impulsivity and inattention/distractibility. The test results are presented in a report that compares your results with a non-ADHD group of people of the same age and gender.
QbTest provides objective data that together with other information will help your clinician to identify, rule out and monitor ADHD.
QbTest can also provide valuable information when customizing treatment intervention based on your individual performance.
How is a QbTest performed?
The test is performed in front of a computer screen and is independent of your language, reading or mathematic skills. The test equipment consists of an infrared camera, a headband with a reflective marker attached to it and a responder button. The task depends on your age:
Press when the circle appears, do not press when the crossed over circle appears.
Press at stimuli number 2, 3 and 4 in this example.
What do the results look like?
18-year-old person with ADHD
An 18-year-old person assessed for suspected ADHD, performed the test to the right below. Compared to the person without ADHD, his activity level increased and his reaction time varied significantly during the test. This is typically seen in adults with ADHD, and together with observations and other clinical assessment tools can help confirm an ADHD diagnosis.
