This allows for flexibility of administration and control over technical parameters for high repeatability.
NHD offers a suite of cognitive and psychological assessments that measures subtle and acute changes in cognitive resilience and speed to aid in the assessment of an individual’s medical or psychological state.
It provides a wealth of data – from single glance top-level scores to intensively detailed trial-by-trial data – and gives an over-time, visual representation of a person’s cognitive development side-by-side with psychological test scores.
This is all achieved at the tap of a screen, in as little as 5 minutes.
$345M+ is spent annually treating Americans who suffer from mTBI, concussion, depression, mental illness, MS, Parkinson’s disease, and other brain-health conditions. And millions more cases are undiagnosed or misdiagnosed each year.
What if it were as easy to check the brain’s vital signs as it is to take a temperature or measure blood pressure? While we know that 98.6 is a normal body temperature and 120/80 is a healthy blood pressure, until now, we’ve ignored our most important vital sign – brain function.
As health care systems focus on wellness, prevention, earlier at-risk intervention, and home-based health care, regular testing for cognitive efficiency is a valuable tool for primary care providers, emergency departments, mental health practitioners, and integrative care systems.
Assessment software can be used during rehabilitation treatments to measure progress or decline after a stroke, concussion, TBI or other neurological incident, as well as to track detailed changes in cognitive performance throughout treatment and recovery. Because of it's portability, the test can be given bedside, in an office, during treatment, or during physical therapy.
The advancement of telerehabilitation in many states allows recovery at home. Assessment software may be integrated as part of a home telemonitoring solution checking other vital signs (blood pressure, temperature, glucose, or heart rate) or detecting impact and falls, location or activity monitoring. As a standalone solution, caregivers or patients can run cognitive tests in as little as 5 minutes, using a smartphone or tablet. Collected reports can then be securely sent to a medical professional.
Addressing behavioral health is as important as physical health, and care providers need tools that can engage people in monitoring their own brain health.
Many mental health assessment techniques rely on self-report to track progress, which creates problems for care providers, as behavioral health conditions can affect self-perception. Digital assessments go beyond self-report and allow for objective tracking and feedback during intervention and treatment.
