Attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) is a common disorder affecting children. ADHD also affects as many as 10% of adults. Symptoms of ADHD include inattention, hyperactivity, and impulsivity.
Research suggests that the symptoms of ADHD can persist into adulthood, having a significant impact on the relationships, careers, and even the personal safety of patients who may suffer from it. (World Health Organization).
There are multiple parts used in making the diagnosis of ADHD. Information gathered from friends, family, teachers and yourself is used in conjunction with testing. There is no lab test for ADHD, but Focused Adult is a provider of QbCheck, an FDA approved, objective test for ADHD.
Because this disorder is often misunderstood, many people who have it do not receive appropriate treatment and, as a result, may never reach their full potential. (World Health Organization)
QbCheck is a computer based, objective test for ADHD. This test is performed by specially trained medical professionals in a controlled, clinical setting. It is FDA approved and is now available in Oklahoma at Focused Adult clinic.
Trouble maintaining concentration, excessive activity or "hyperactivity", underachievement, trouble following instructions, procrastination, lack of organization, moodiness, impulsive, and easily frustrated.
People with ADHD are often able to keenly concentrate on topics that they have interest in. This allows them to become experts in these narrow topics. At the same time, they have trouble paying attention to other, less interesting topics.
QbCheck is a medical device/system, cleared by the FDA, that measures the core symptoms associated with ADHD. The test is devised to test patients ages 6-60. QbCheck is done at home, under controlled settings. The fundamental core of the QbCheck is a computer assisted attention and impulse control task that simultaneously records activity using an infrared camera for precise motion measurements. This test is one piece of the data used to diagnose and monitor the treatment of our patients.
QbCheck provides data that, together with other information collected from the patient and family, helps to identify, exclude, and monitor ongoing treatment of ADHD. With improved accuracy of diagnosis, and more efficient, patient-specific treatment, Focused Adult intends to aid our patients in reaching their full potential in school, career, and life.
At Focused Adult, we can perform testing on patients ages 6-60. We only treat adult patients, but partner with Pediatricians with the diagnosis and management of their patients.
