The aim is to find, as fast as possible, all 40 numbered randomly distributed tiles (by tapping them) consecutively, starting from tile number 1 and ending at tile number 40.
To make detailed diagnostics the app integrates with the health app (HealthKit) to read birthdate, gender, steps taken and additionally can ask for optional access to the camera for tracking eye-gaze. The anonymous data from the test are sent to the cloud storage for further analysis, development and improvements of the classification and diagnostic algorithms.
Such a method of improving the clarity of mind, attention ability and visual perception is a modification of the idea known as a Schulte table (S. A. Rimskij, R. R. Rimskaja, Almanac of psychological tests, 3rd Edition, KSP, 1996, pp. 117118). The App is a Winner of the competition of the Polpharma Scientific Foundation The use of mobile techniques in the prevention, diagnosis and treatment of civilization diseases.
The results (current score as well as previous scores) will be shown after tapping last (40th) tile. The most recent result is indicated as a bar at the bottom with the numerical value of the score. The direction of the score bar depends on the progress (bar directed to the right from the middle white line) or regress in general test results for the user. The middle white line shows the average value of the score of previous tests done by the user. The color of the bar indicates the value of the score (preliminary diagnostics) and the thin red line shows the best score achieved so far. The results calculation is under constant optimization and in future releases of the app will include more detailed analysis based on data from clinical trials.
The score evaluation function in version 1.0 is based on global time of the test and the age and gender of the user (if available).
The results are shown as a green, yellow or red horizontal bar starting in the middle of the screen and directed to the right (better results) or to the left (worse results). If you can find all the tiles fast enough to get result indicated by a green bar, it is great score and your mind can focus correctly and is pretty perceptive. If your score is indicated by yellow bar, thats still ok, however you can try to be faster. The score bar shown in red means that your mind is sleepy and it should be woken up. To get better focusing ability more training is required
