QBTEST – OBJECTIVE COMPUTERIZED ADHD TESTING
QBTest is an advanced ADHD test FDA Cleared for treatment and diagnosis and used to gain a clear understanding of your symptoms. ADHD has three main symptoms:
- Inattention – the extent to which someone can remain focused on a task
- Hyperactivity – the amount of movement, e.g. tapping foot, fidgeting
- Impulsivity – lack of impulse control, e.g. blurting out answers in class
Your provider has recommended a QbTest, what should you expect?
You will sit a 15- 20-minute computer-based task. The task measures your ability to maintain attention and impulse control. Meanwhile, an infrared camera tracks any movements during the test. The results are used to create a report which compares your result with data from other people of the same sex and age. This way you can see how you react when you concentrate on a task in comparison with people who do not have ADHD.
What does the test look like?
The test equipment consists of an infrared camera, a head-band with an infrared marker attached to it and a responder button, like so:
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 minutes to complete and is not dependent on your language, reading or mathematic skills.
