Reseachers at George Tech have created software that is a digital version of the Clock Drawing Test used to diagnose early signs of cognitive impairment
The ClockReader test can be taken with a stylus and computer or tablet
Early diagnosis of Alzheimer’s disease can make a huge difference in the management of the disease, and this can be achieved by making testing procedures more easily accessible. For that reason, Georgia Institute of Technology researchers led by Ellen Yi-Luen Do have created a digital version of the Clock Drawing Test commonly used to detect cognitive impairment. The two-part evaluation does away with the paper and makes it easier for patients to get tested, besides giving doctors a more sophisticated tool for making assessments.
