Quotient® ADHD Test
The Quotient ADHD Test is a new FDA-cleared technology for the objective measurement of hyperactivity, impulsivity and inattention, as an aid in the assessment of ADHD. The test measures motion and analyzes shifts in attention state to give an assessment of the core symptom areas of ADHD:
The test is a more objective test than previous methods of diagnosis and serves as an additional tool clinicians. The test can also be used to quantify severity of deficits in brain function associated with controlling motion and sustaining attention. The results are objective and allow the patient, parent and physician to see the progress when treatment is working and help to guide decisions about how to optimize the treatment plan for each individual.
Testing can be performed on individuals from age six to 55 years. The test takes 15 minutes for children aged six to 12 or 20 minutes for adolescents and adults. The test also has a 94 percent negative predictive value, which means it can indicate with 94 percent certainty that an individual does or does not have ADHD.
