DRUID App for Researchers- the Gold Standard of Impairment Measurement.

Unlike proxy-based testing devices, the DRUID app assesses actual cognitive motor impairment; reaction time, hand-eye coordination, balance, and the ability to perform divided attention tasks. It is available for all Apple or Android devices. It’s fast, non- invasive and much less expensive than other solutions to measure impairment.

 

“a novel mobile device application (the DRUID), was the most sensitive measure of impairment when compared to the other cognitive performance tasks administered (i.e., the DSST, DAT, and PASAT) as well as several common field sobriety tests (i.e., the WT, OLS and MRB).”

-Dr. Ryan Vandrey, Johns Hopkins Medical Center

The DRUIDapp is widely used in the scientific community to study impairment.  Here are some of the research studies using the app as the measurement tool.
