QbTest is an objective tool for measuring the three main signs of activity and attention disorder (ATH) - hyperactivity, attention deficit and impulsivity - in children, adolescents and adults. The test is an important tool for diagnosing ATH, assessing the effectiveness of treatment and long-term monitoring of the disorder.
The duration of the test is 45 minutes and it is used in the age range of 6 to 60 years.
The test is performed in a computer - a special remote control is connected to the computer platform, which measures impulsivity and attention, and a motion sensor that provides activity data. The results of the test are transmitted by the computer program in comparison with the standard age group. The test results are reflected graphically in the report. This enables to present objectified and relatively easy-to-understand test results to both the patients themselves and their loved ones. The mental health specialist assesses the results of the tests as complex with clinical data, as a general rule, a special questionnaire is also required to diagnose ATH. The test is carried out by a nurse or mental health nurse and the psychiatrist interprets the results and plans further activities with the person being evaluated. For clients who are not being treated at the Toomparg Mental Health Centre, we will issue the test results on paper.
