The status quo just doesn't cut it.
The industry standard ADHD test relies exclusively on voluntary cooperation and complex actions involving hundreds of neural pathways that dramatically reduce accuracy. The test takes approximately 25 minutes, a difficult task for a child who has trouble focusing.
By contrast, we test attention in just six minutes by using an EMG system to measure reflexive responses to auditory stimuli and to levels of inhibition. The more exaggerated the response, or the lower the level of inhibition, the more serious the problem.
Why is accurate testing so important?
Diagnosing and treating ADHD is an inexact science. It can take weeks or months of trial and error to arrive at a precise diagnosis that results in an accurate drug prescription.
During that wait, adverse effects of taking too much stimulant medication (like Ritalin) include the "zombie effect," rapid heart rate, increased blood pressure, tremors, and agitation. Worst-case scenarios include schizophrenic-like psychosis, heart attack, stroke, seizures, and death.
A precise diagnosis with an accurate and personalized drug prescription would prevent this problem.
