Scientifically proven test quality with the Vienna Test System NEURO
Optimize your clinical neuropsychological assessment process
Would you like to spend less time laboriously scoring paper-and-pencil tests and instead utilize all the advantages of digital testing? Do you need a wide range of tests that assess neuropsychologically relevant dimensions?
Identification of the type and localization of brain damage does not in itself provide sufficient information about the extent (quantitative) and nature (qualitative) of any functional impairment. Reliable and valid neuropsychologically relevant tests and efficient treatment methods are needed if functional impairments are to be assessed in both quantitative and qualitative terms and subsequently treated.
The Vienna Test System NEURO is the version of the Vienna Test System (VTS) specially adapted for use in clinical neuropsychology. It is our all-in-one product solution that utilizes all the advantages of the digital world. Data administration, testing and scoring are user-friendly, self-explanatory and flexible. For our customers this means objective administration of tests, precise test material and scoring that is accurate, sophisticated, and graphically well presented.
Specific, exact, theory-led – the three fundamentals of the tests in the Vienna Test System and the cognitive training programs in CogniPlus provide certainty in assessment and therapy.
You have at your fingertips specific and sensitive tests covering all the relevant neuropsychological functions and sub-functions, in accordance with the guidelines of the prestigious German Neuropsychological Society. The tests include established and well-known tools such as the Trail Making Test (TMT-L) and the Tower of London (TOL-F), and tests that measure time-sensitive dimensions, such as the Perception and Attention Battery (WAF). The system is modular, enabling the neuropsychological tests relevant to the issue under investigation to be selected. The tests can be combined into test batteries. In addition, you have access to specially developed test batteries known as test sets.
The VTS NEURO is used in connection with neurological disorders, mental disorders and reintegration to work.
You too can benefit from our know-how

The perfect team: the Vienna Test System NEURO and CogniPlus
CogniPlus is a scientifically based training program for attention, executive functions, memory, neglect/visual field, spatial processing and visuo-motor skills. It has been developed alongside the Vienna Test System NEURO, enabling neuropsychological tests to be administered to identify the need for training and to monitor the progress made as a result of training. The corresponding tests and training programs are based on the same theoretically clearly defined constructs. However, the tests and cognitive training programs use different tasks. This enables a reliable distinction to be made between the material–specific learning effect and the desired training effect. Read more: CogniPlus
"The treatment of attention disorders must always be preceded by careful assessment, since many therapy studies have shown that treatment must be specifically tailored to the deficit that is present. In the case of disorders of basic attention functions (alertness, vigilance) in particular, the use of over-complex training programs may result in a deterioration of performance. Computerized therapy programs that train specific attention functions in realistic everyday situations have proved useful.” (Guidelines of the German Society for Neuropsychological Assessment and Therapy)
