The Functional Standardized Touchscreen Assessment of Cognition (FSTAC) is the first of it's kind in cognitive screening tools.
FSTAC provides 14 functional tasks for a person to complete and then provides a report on functional & cognitive performance.
One of the features that makes FSTAC so valuable is the integration of real life distractions, such as text messages, phone messages and noise. These distractions in the setting of a cognitively complex task provide the perfect setting to assess a person's cognitive abilities and breakdowns.
Clinicians can now observe their clients performing functional tasks that range from simple to complex utilizing current technology.
Cognitive domains include:
Auditory & Visual attention
Auditory & Visual Short term memory
Language Auditory Comprehension
Executive Function (Flexibility, Org, Prob solving)
Insight/Awareness of performance
Functional tasks include:
Cash management: paying and making change
Grocery shopping - Organization, planning
Story listen and recall
Bill pay over phone
Handling normal distractions
Recalling tasks to do in a day

Simplified registration section now only requires certain fields be completed.
Added PIN verification to ensure users know unlock PIN prior to test administration.
Added pop up warning to notify users if email not configured on iPad, which would result in user not being able to send report.
Ratings and Reviews
I really like the premise of this app and think it is great for higher level, functional tasks. I would like to ask for one correction/change. With the medication management task, the use of the word “dinner” is ambiguous, as it can mean lunch or supper. Dinner, per the dictionary, means “the main meal of the day, taken either around midday or in the evening.” Many of our older folks consider lunchtime to be dinner. Thank you!
Great Assessment Tool!
Not only is this unique in the functional tasks it assesses, but the report is clear, easy to read and correlates the cognitive domains associated with each task which may be affected. I would love to be able to pause the test or administer specific sub tests, though I realize that it might impact the validity of the results.
Love this App
I love this app for the Home Health population, but I wish there was a way to give portions of it as subtests, instead of the whole thing. Sometimes its a bit long to get through everything. Lots a great information though.
