QbTest is an FDA cleared, CE marked and widely used objective test that measures activity, attention and impulsivity. It is a computer-based test that combines attention measurements with an activity analysis based on a motion tracking system. The test results are instantly analyzed and presented in a report that compares a patient's results with a group of people of the same age and gender who do not have ADHD.
Assessing ADHD may be complicated and there is no single clinical tool that is able to give all the answers. The QbTest provides objective data that together with other clinical information will help a clinician assess a patient for ADHD. QbTest can also be used for treatment follow-up and adjusting medication management.
The test is performed in front of a computer screen. The test equipment consists of an infrared camera, a head-band with a reflective marker attached to it and a response button. During the test a number of symbols are shown on the computer screen. The task is to push the responder button when a certain symbol appears on the screen.
The test takes 15 to 20 minutes depending on the age of the person undertaking the test.
