The Cognitive Assessment Battery for Parkinson's (CAB-PK) from CogniFit was designed to help professionals detect, diagnose, and treat Parkinson's Disease. This tool helps provide a complete cognitive screening of the patient and provides a detailed report that allows a trained professional to identify the deficits or alterations associated with Parkinson's. This information can be vital for making a diagnosis, creating an intervention plan, and monitoring the patient's rehabilitation.

Cognitive Assessment for Parkinson's
Explore and discover the areas most affected by Parkinson's Disease.
Measure possible cognitive alterations with this test for Parkinson's.
The cognitive evaluation is made up of the following tasks:
- Memory area: Working memory, contextual memory, and short-term memory.
- Attention area: Focus, updating, and divided attention.
- Perception area: Visual perception and estimation.
- Coordination area: Response time.
- Reasoning area: Planning and processing speed.
Task and test batteries for the cognitive evaluation of people with Parkinson's
- Duration: This battery will take about 15-20 minutes.

- Audience: Adults.
Analyzed neuropsychological areas and their relation to Parkinson's
Scientifically based: Validated task batteries
The Parkinson's assessment battery was designed by a group of professional neurologists and psychologists and based on the latest Parkinson's research.
The assessment is made up of a set of tasks created by using visual and auditory stimuli adapted to the characteristics of each user. Each task measure one more cognitive skills. The assessment measures 11 different cognitive skills in its 13 tasks.
Each of the tasks has been scientifically backed and received a score of .8 on the Alpha Crombach statistic measurement.
Every pathology comes with a certain level of cognitive deterioration. These cognitive declines can be seen in the person's daily life. According to CogniFit's studies and scientific literature, Parkinson's is accompanied by both physical and cognitive deterioration. Some of the following cognitive skills may be affected in someone with Parkinson's.
It has been proven that an efficient cognitive assessment requires individuallization and personalization. This is why each one of our Parkinson's tasks adapts to the unique characteristics of each user.
The Parkinson's evaluation system ensures high efficiency by monitoring user results and adjusting tasks in real time.
The results will presented in a report using graphs and images that will represent the user's score for each cognitive skill. In the graphs, you will see the stronger skills in green, the average skills in yellow, and the deficient skills in red. Through these results, the professional will receive quantitative results about the patient's cognitive state. This information will be significant proof to support or refute a possible disgnosis.
