The Clock Drawing Test Is Now Automated
Boca Raton, FL (PRWEB) June 27, 2006
SpecialtyAutomated â¢, a company that offers the largest selection of interactive media screening test products, systems, and kiosks, today revealed their new automated clock drawing test, Time2Tell â¢.
This is the very first time ever that the traditional clock drawing test has been successfully automated.
Up until now, the clock drawing tests have been carried out by clinicians using paper and pencil to obtain a snapshot of general cognitive and adaptive functioning abilities of patients.
Since many versions of the paper and pencil-based clock drawing test exist, Time2Tell â¢ represents a first for a standardized and objective clock drawing test that can be used by clinicians, physicians, and government agencies.
Clock drawing tests are popular cognitive screening tools due to their unique psychometric properties and clinical utility usage.
Studies show that the clock drawing tests screen for cognitive dysfunction secondary to dementia and various psychiatric illnesses.
Other studies show that clock drawing tests may be used as an independent assessment tool for nursing home admission, assisted living admittance, detection of neurological dysfunction, 24-hour retirement community care evaluations, or as potential indicators for driving problems in the elderly.
Time2Tell â¢ may be used alone or in combination with other screening tools to assess cognitive impairment or difficulties associated with vision perception of spatial relationships among objects.
SpecialtyAutomated â¢ also utilizes Time2Tell â¢ to promote highway safety by screening dementia drivers and other motorists.
Military Time2Tell â¢ is another version of Time2Tell â¢ that is now available for military and international clientele who are familiar with 24-hour clocks instead of US standard time.
âAutomation of the clock drawing test allows quick screening that can save significant time, labor, and other expenses in an overburdened clinical environment,â said Alexander J. Casco, Executive Marketing Manager of SpecialtyAutomated â¢. âAny agency in need of automating its operations will now want to add Time2Tell to its repertoire.â
