Digital Clock Drawing Test
Researchers at Georgia Tech have come up with a digital version of the clock drawing test. The clock drawing test has been around for some time and is a pretty quick and easy way to see if a patient has a cognitive impairment. Their research (PDF) lead them to write the ClockReader System to allow an individual to take the clock drawing test without the need for another person to be present for the administration or evaluation of the test. This will allow patients to be tested regularly for signs of disease progression.
