BrainCare facilitates better monitoring and recommendations
With BrainCare, patients and their families have access to reports on patient test performance, as well as activity recommendations based on the latest clinical research. Clinicians can more easily provide research-backed recommendations to help patients better track progress.
Research involving tests by NeuroTrax, the company behind BrainCare, has been published in nearly 200 peer-reviewed scientific articles. Hundreds of research studies have been completed involving tens of thousands of participants from sixteen countries. Also, numerous international conference presentations have featured our tests. No other brain fitness testing system has as much scientific backing.
BrainCare is based on optimized technology that achieves accurate measurements of response times. That translates to better estimates of how quickly the brain can process and analyze information – a key dimension of brain fitness.
BrainCare is easy to re-administer, making it ideal for tracking longitudinal changes. In addition, there are features to minimize practice effects.
We designed BrainCare tests to work in the “real world” and ensure that accurate data are gathered as long as the testing computer fits the basic technical requirements. For example, our system conducts practice sessions before each test and automatically determines whether a client has adequately mastered the “mouse” buttons and has the visual acuity and color recognition necessary to perform the tests.
No prior computer experience is necessary
As reported in a study involving nearly 3,000 older people, most clients report that our tests are easy to use. This was true even for people with no computer experience.
"It offers concrete data that can help identify which spheres of cognition are being affected."
“Allows easier access to cognitive assessments with good efficacy in a reasonable time frame."
“Longitudinal follow up with repeat testing sessions is also one of its strengths.”
“It's a peer-reviewed test that provides results that can be used to help improve care.”
“It allows for numeric and graphic comparisons both to 'normal' scores and also previous tests of same individual.”
“It lends the examiner credence when showing the results "in black and white.”
“Allows a more objective cognitive assessment and the results are often not obvious on interview.”
“This is a valuable tool that gives insight into current cognitive levels."
“Results are immediately available and the data can be instantly absorbed."
“People of a wide age range are able to perform this test with minimal to no computer knowledge.”
“… people appreciate having a time-efficient method of evaluating their cognition.”
“It's a convenient, on-site tool that provides a snapshot with a fair level of detail pertaining to one's cognitive abilities.”
“Provides a convenient, objective, cognitive assessment at low cost.”
“It is easy to use - it can be very time savvy”
“A more objective assessment of cognitive function”
“Good tool for establishing a baseline and tracking progress.”
“It creates an objective report.”
