Unlike cognitive testing done using paper and pencil tests, Cognivue® is based on neurophysiology and psychophysical research that dynamically tests cortical function.
Comparison to Written Tests
Cognitive testing is often done using paper and pencil tests. These assessments are time-consuming, tedious, subject to tester bias and fatigue, and often too costly. Often, they are not administered at all unless specifically requested by a patient. A more recent trend has been digitalization of these paper and pencil tests to make them more accessible.
Cognivue changes all of this with a rapid and objective test that fits into the workflow of any busy practice. Both Cognivue Clarity and Cognivue Thrive produce a simple and easy to interpret report that’s easy to understand and communicate. Something every patient can understand. Test results are also stored locally and cloud-based for longitudinal test comparison.
Below is a series of charts that compares Cognivue with traditional paper and pencil tests for cognitive function.
First self-administered computerized test of cognitive function that’s FDA-cleared and completed in just 10-minutes (Cognivue Clarity) or 5-minutes (Cognivue Thrive). A large scale study conducted in 2014 compared Cognivue to standard neuropsychological tests and led to the FDA-clearance of the device.
SLUMS, MMSE, MoCA, 3MS
These cognitive screening tools are administered by a Health Professional (20 minutes). The Montreal Cognitive Assessment (MoCA), Saint Louis Mental Status Examination (SLUMS), Mini-Mental State Examination (MMSE) and Modified Mini-Mental State (3MS) are traditional screening tests of cognitive abilities.
General Practitioner assessment of Cognition (CPCOG) is a brief screening test for dementia normally performed in primary care setting. Six minute written test administered and scored by physician.
The Alzheimer's Disease Assessment Scale - Cognitive sub scale test evaluates cognitive impairment and can be administered by staff or a specialist (40 minutes).
Psychogeriatric Assessment Scales test evaluates cognitive impairment and can be administered by a Clinical Interviewer (40 minutes).
