Snappy App: a mobile continuous performance test with physical activity measurement for assessing hyperactivity disorder
Young, Zoe and Craven, Michael P. and Groom, Madeleine J. and Crowe, John A. (2014) Snappy App: a mobile continuous performance test with physical activity measurement for assessing hyperactivity disorder. Lecture Notes in Computer Science, 8512 . pp. 363-373. ISSN 0302-9743
A Continuous Performance Test (CPT) was incorporated into a smartphone application (App) to measure three symptom domains associated with Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD); attention, impulsivity and hyperactivity. The App was pilot tested on 11 healthy adults over three testing sessions. No differences in performance were found between testing sessions suggesting good test consistency. A decrement in performance over time was only found for one measure of attention and on one testing session. The CPT showed some sensitivity to ADHD-related symptoms where self-reported impulsive behaviour was related to the CPT measures of impulsivity and activity. User acceptability was good although some design improvements were suggested. Further pilot testing of the App in a clinical population is needed.
