In 2015 the estimated number of dementia patient worldwide added up to 46.8 million. Annually there are over 9.9 million new cases of illness, implying one new case every 3 seconds on average. The risk of coming down with dementia increases with a rising age.

  • Attention: Perception and Attention Functions WAF
  • Working memory: Corsi-Block-Tapping-Test CORSI
  • Verbal learning and remembering ability: Auditory Wordlist Learning Test AWLT (new)
  • Information processing speed: Trail Making Test TMT-A
  • Cognitive flexibility: Trail Making Test TMT-B
  • Word fluency: Vienna Word Fluency Test WIWO (new)
  • Object naming: Vienna Object Naming Test WOBT (new)
  • Visuoconstruction: Visuoconstructiontest VISCO (new)


The joy of the patients about testing supports the compliance. Convince yourself:


As one of the validation partners for the test set for early detection of dementia developed by SCHUHFRIED, we had the opportunity to benefit from the advantages of this innovation right from the development phase. The compact, reliable and time-efficient measurement is available as a mobile application. With repeated neuropsychological investigations of progressive cognitive disorders, we benefit in particular from the parallel tests that were developed especially for development testing. In an interdisciplinary team of a group practice, the new dementia test finally closes a gap and is a valuable instrument for psychological diagnostics.“

Performance and analysis - automatic and practical
CFD is more than just a short test. Particular emphasis is placed on the ideal relationship of gaining information and testing duration. The pioneering advantages of the analysis are convincing as well:

  • Age norming 50 to 90+ years with the option of continuous norming
  • Strengthened interaction between patient and supervisor
  • Touchscreen operation simplifies digital testing for the 50+ age group
  • Possibility of audio recordings for tests with a verbal answer format
  • Cross-test, automatic analysis
  • Joint results presentation of initial and development testing
  • Indicators for development diagnostics that also take into account test repetition effects
  • "Traffic light" based on the DSM 5 criteria for minor/major neurocognitive disorders
  • Synergy effects by adding tests from the Vienna Test System for additional assessment situations



The test set breaks new ground in digital testing and dementia diagnostics.
Sounds interesting? The test set CFD will be available as of March 2017. Stay tuned!
