We have a developed a proof-of-concept for a testing ecosystem for cognitive disorders. This system assists in detection of cognitive disorders by re-implementing existing neurocognitive tests as applications on devices with stylus-sensitive screens. We believe this will allow digital displays to assist in administering the test in a way that steers the subject away from behaviors that would invalidate the test, such as non-sequential test completion. Using the sensors in the stylus and other devices enables collecting data about the subject's incidental behavior, e.g. how long it took to read and respond to directions. This info may aid in diagnosis. With automated data collection and a secure central server, this proof-of-concept also aims to reduce the administrative workload on clinicians.
