Two ‘Provista’ Memory Tests, United States of America, 2006-2007

Patients used these two Provista Memory Tests to detect memory loss. They feature a booklet questionnaire and pencil. The test consists of 20 simple questions such as, ‘who is the president?’ or, ‘what year is it?’ The completed questionnaire was sent for analysis to maker Provista Life Sciences in the US. These tests are marketed as ‘in the home’ self-administered tests. They are for patients worried about dementia or the degenerative disease, Alzheimer’s. If the score is in the abnormal range, the test directs the patient to see their doctor for further assessment. This test cannot diagnose disease. However, it can indicate the need for further professional investigation.
