Scientific Studies with SCHUHFRIED

Quality in practice

SCHUHFRIED stands for quality and conducts various studies since the beginning on its own. In addition to that, SCHUHFRIED also collaborates with university-level institutions, students and partners in research and economy to prove its strict quality criterias in innovative topics.

We assembled an informative extract from our numerousness studies for you.

The following topics are currently of special interest for SCHUHFRIED:

  • Safety assessment in personnel selection (pilots, professional drivers, etc.)
  • Neuropsychological assessment of and cognitive training for diseases related to dementia
  • Neuropsychological assessment of and cognitive training for psychiatric disorders
  • Traffic psychology issues (e.g. Fitness to Drive in older drivers, cognitive training and Fitness to Drive)
