Timely detection of memory impairment
Healthcare professionals want to be able to identify the earliest signs of clinically-relevant memory impairment so that their patients can receive reassurance or further investigations in a timely manner.
CANTAB Mobile, delivered via an iPad, combines a sensitive, touchscreen memory test, which has been used in clinical research of Alzheimer's disease for over 30 years, with a depression screen to differentiate symptoms.

The CANTAB Mobile assessment
CANTAB Mobile is intended to be used as an adjunctive tool to assess memory by testing visuospatial associative learning in patients aged 50 – 90 years.
Memory is assessed using the CANTAB Paired Associates Learning (PAL) test, which is adaptive; testing will end once a patient reaches their limit for the number of attempts for their age, gender or level of education.
CANTAB Mobile includes two optional questionnaires, a mood assessment (the Geriatric Depression Scale or GDS-15) and an assessment of activities of daily living.
'CANTAB Mobile is fantastic. Patients have found it easy to use and the language options are very helpful.'
General Practitioner, Kingston Health Centre
