Assessing ADHD may be complicated and there is no single clinical tool that is able to give you all the answers. The QbTest provides objective data that together with other information will help your clinician assess you for ADHD.

The test is performed in front of a computer screen. The test equipment consists of an infrared camera, a head-band with an infrared marker attached to it and a responder 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 minutes to complete and is not dependent on your language, reading or mathematic skills.
