Alzheimer's app revealed

8th September 2011

A mobile application to test patients for the early signs of Alzheimer’s disease has been made available to GPs in the UK for trial.

The Cambridge Neuropsychological Test Automated Battery (CANTAB) was developed at Cambridge University 25 years ago and over that time has been used in academic research and by the pharmaceutical industry. It has now been turned into a mobile app-type test that can be used by GPs and involves patients using a mobile, touch-screen device to carry out a memory test. The results can be emailed to medical staff, printed out or integrated into electronic patient records.
