CLINICALLY VALIDATED: BIOMARKER BASED TEST THAT SUPPORTS ADHD DIAGNOSIS. BGaze ADHD testing was cleared for clinical use April 2016.
Diagnosing ADHD correctly and objectively (also convincing patients and parents that treatment is necessary and must be adhered to) is not always an easy task. Even though in-depth observation and the use of best practice checklists can most often lead to a solid diagnosis, every psychiatrist encounters unclear cases.
To address this issue, Braingaze has clinically validated the performance of the BGaze involuntary biomarker in the diagnosis of ADHD. In the age group of 7-14 years, our clinical evidence shows of 96% accuracy when compared to a gold standard multi-disciplinary / extended protocol diagnosis in line with DSM-5 criteria.

The whole system takes less than an hour to setup.
Braingaze selects good hardware that works perfectly fine with our software and performs an feel and good environment in order to make confortable the user. The basic hardware includes these things:
For clinical uses, Braingaze recommends to have full BGaze setup that includes the following:
•Regulable support monitor
The features of the laptop is important to achieve a correct performance at runtime. CPU with 4 cores and 4GB of RAM is the minimum required in order for the system to function well.
We have had many experiments with many eyetrackers and Tobii resulted to be the best eyetracker for us in order to have a good data adquisition for our analysis. Just requires a USB port for its connection.
The advantage of having a second monitor is that while the doctor views the operator screen, the patient views the patient screen and is not distracted in any way, resulting in an optimal test execution.
Adjustable arm for monitor
In order to correctly set the height of the patient monitor, we recommend using an adjustable screen support that allows for easy adjustment of the height of the monitor.
Sometimes the patient has to react through a physicalartifact after when a stimulus in the experiment appears. A key from keyboard can perform those reactions but it can done also with a button, more elegant and comfortable for doctor and patient.
A chinrest anchors the patient's head at the right position in front of the screen. We recommend using a chin rest to obtain high quality data from the eye tracker leading to highest diagnostic classification performance.
BGaze ADHD system
The system is easy to install and it takes less than an hour to set it up. All can be mounted on a single table in a separate room. The mobile system is ideal for testing patients at different locations, and can be placed on an office desk. An Internet connection is needed for uploading data and receiving the evaluation report.
For optimal testing performance Braingaze has selected hardware solution for optimal recording and comfort.
The Bgaze ADHD system includes:
•Remote eye tracker (Tobii X2-30)
•Laptop or Desktop PC
•Adjustable monitor support
