BERLIN - Aug. 2, 2020 - PRLog -- It has been known for some time from several studies that cognitive tests can "predict" dementia 10-12 years before the first clinical symptoms. The American "Rush Institute for Healthy Ageing" recently showed in a prospective study 1) involving 2125 participants that this is possible even 18 years earlier.

A group of physicians has therefore developed a simple, validated and easily accessible multi-dimensional cognitive test - the DST App (Dementia Screening Test). The reliability of the test results, especially in the asymptomatic stage (MCI - Mild Cognitive Impairment), has been proven by clinical studies (sensitivity >96%, specificity>91%). The test has therefore been recognised as a medical device by the competent authorities, including the entire EU, Switzerland, Iceland, Norway, Liechtenstein, Canada and Australia.

Since then, the test has received several awards, including the
- Vision.A Award in Gold, as best patient App.
- Digimeda 2020 award - Top Dementia App, the only dementia app that is recognized as a medical device and validated by studies.
- ORCHA 2020: 1st place, best dementia app, and among the best rated medical apps ever
- iMedicalApps: "excellent app...the simpler the better, that's true for the DST."
- Center for Telematics and Telemedicine, Germany: confirms high level of data protection.

Many patients worry about dementia and dependence in old age. With the DST, these persons can be relieved of this worry to a certain extent. Your patient can find information on installation and handling at www.demenz-test.com. The test is conveniently carried out at home and thus relieves the daily routine in the practice. For most people, the test can give the "all-clear". Only if the result is conspicuous will your patient be advised to seek further medical examinations. The interpretation of the test results is as follows:

Interpretation of the test results
29-30 points    normal / no limitations detected
27-28 points    in some areas slight limitations are possible / DD MCI
24-26 points    slight limitations are possible / DD early Dementia
0-23  points    limitations are probable/ DD moderate to severe Dementia
