Boca Raton, FL, March 12, 2008 --(PR.com
)-- SpecialtyAutomated, a leader in online test technology, announces the online automation of the Trail Making Tests for the first time. The development of these new web-based assessments now allows researchers and physicians to rapidly and objectively study the brain function of numerous subjects at the same time.
Previously it was impossible to computerize and standardize the trail making tests, so scientists had to rely on more indirect and traditional methods. These methods could only limit the test to paper and other non-autonomous test administration techniques.
Online Trail Making Tests(TM) rapidly engage speakers of other languages and subjects with special needs and disabilities who were otherwise eliminated from the cognitive testing process. Online Trail Making Tests empower and allow subjects who are unable to write or hold a writing instrument to take the test on their own. Scores and results are immediate.
Studies now show that Online Trail Making Tests effectively differentiate between subjects with Alzheimer’s disease.
The Trail Making Test Part B and the Clock Drawing Test are both recommended by the American Medical Association to screen older drivers. As online tools available exclusively from SpecialtyAutomated, these tests are powerful weapons that can be used in fitness to drive determinations for drivers of all ages. In the medical community, these tests can be used to quickly detect, monitor, and treat those with cognitive disorders, such as dementia, Alzheimer disease, autism, and brain injury. Nursing homes and Assisted Living Facilities could also use Online Trail Making Tests as independent assessments to independently evaluate potential clients.
Since all Online Trail Making Tests are administered over the Internet, no paper is needed so countless trees are saved. No software, CDs, DVDs, downloads, kiosks, or heavy equipment are required. Online tests are easily implemented in existing computer setups. These products are ideal green solutions that are both user-friendly and eco-friendly.
Online Trail Making Test Part A (TM), Online Trail Making Test Part B (TM), and Online Trail Making Tests Part A and Part B (TM) can be rapidly and inexpensively administered online to drivers of all ages. Low-cost demos are available at: http://www.trailmakingtest.com
