■ 開発経緯

Medical Care Corporationは高齢化する世界の人の健康と生活の質を予防、早期発見、記憶障害の管理を通じ、その質の向上に貢献する意義の下組織されました。Medical Care Corporationは1999年に米国カルフォルニア州アーバインに創設された私設の神経情報科学研究企業です。認識能力を正確に測り、観察することを目的としたテクノロジーの開発に特化し、高度の統計分析を大規模なデータベースを用い、データを分析・抽出する高度技術を用い、対象者の認知機能が「正常」な状態であるか否かを正確に判別する技術の独占所有権を得ました。Medical Care Corporationは大規模な臨床データを元に革新的な臨床研究に力を入れています。日々進歩する技術革新の中、Medical Care Corporationは実用的なアセスメントツールが臨床者や研究者に提供され、国民のケアのために浸透、活用されることを目指しています。
本テストは、すでに国際的に実績と評価の高いMCI-Screenスケールの日本語版です。
日本語版の開発に際しては言語学者も介入し、テストの等価性が保たれるよう配慮されました。
日本語版の精度検証は福岡大学山田医師グループにて行われ、英語版同等の96%の感度が確認され、日米両国で文献発表されています。
