FAQ's on QbCheck
What is QbCheck?
QbCheck is a web-based, 20 minute long objective test for 6-60 year-olds that measures the three core symptoms of ADHD; hyperactivity, impulsivity and inattention. The test taker’s results are analysed and compared to the result of individuals of the same age and gender, with and without ADHD. The comparison makes it possible for QbCheck, based on objective data, to predict the likelihood of ADHD, and provide healthcare professionals with information that can aid in the evaluation and treatment of ADHD.
What does QbCheck measure?
QbCheck measures the test taker’s movements, ability to pay attention and impulse control during a 15-20 minute test.
How long does QbCheck take?
The test itself is about 15 minutes for children aged between 6-11 years and 20 minutes for individuals aged 12-60. However, the full appointment may take up to 2 hours for each individual.
Why use QbCheck?
QbCheck provides qualified professionals with objective measurements of hyperactivity, impulsivity and inattention to aid in the assessment of ADHD and in the evaluation of treatment interventions in individuals with ADHD (e.g. pre and post medication). QbCheck results should be interpreted only by qualified ADD-vance professionals.
