Jerri Edwards, a researcher at the University of South Florida, found that older participants with UFOV
training were 40% less likely to stop driving in the three-year follow-up period.
screening test accurately identified risk and non-risk older drivers in nearly 85 percent of cases.
Lower scores on the UFOV
posttest indicate that participants improved in visual speed of processing and attention after completion of the home-based speed of processing training; this was statistically significant (ft 14) = 2.
Daniel Roenker of Western Kentucky University developed the UFOV
software more than a decade ago.
As seen in Table 2, baseline performance on UFOV
and TIADL was significantly correlated to training gains in these measures.
5 SD below the mean on the PASAT or CVLT-II received the rest of the neuropsychological battery that included the COWAT , SDMT , an adapted version of the UFOV
, and the Stroop .
Posit Science acquired the UFOV
technology last year and has incorporated it into four of the five InSight exercises.
