The key tapping subtest of the Halstead-Reitan battery, the Purdue Pegboard test, and the Bradykinesia-Akinesia Incoordination (BRAIN) test were performed according to the test manuals.The finger tapping subtest of the UPDRS-III, item 23 was recorded using a contactless 3D motion capture system Optitrack-V120.
You asked for a review of the use of field sobriety tests for drunk driving enforcement and, specifically, the so-called “California tests.” You wanted to know the scientific basis used for giving the field sobriety test battery, how it is determined if someone passes or fails the tests, and what Connecticut cases allow this information to be used to remove a license.Until the mid 1970s, police departments around the country used many different types of field sobriety tests in enforcing drunk driving laws.Average frequency (Avg Frq), maximum opening velocity (Max Op V) and amplitude decrement (Amp Dec) were computed and simultaneous video recordings of finger tapping were rated by two experts.The Amp Dec and Max Op V motion capture measures best differentiated between PD patients and controls (AUC = 0.87 and 0.81).A standard archetype development approach was applied on a case set of three clinical tests for multiple sclerosis assessment: After an analysis of the tests, the obtained data elements were organised and structured.
The appropriate archetype class was selected and the data elements were implemented in an iterative refinement process.
The test battery is currently used in all states, but there are no mandatory requirements for use and many other field sobriety tests also remain in use.
However, NHTSA maintains that only the three-test battery has been validated for accuracy and endorses no other tests as equally reliable.
Testing polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAH) in fuels, distillates and hydrocarbon feed-stocks.
Fuels, middle distillates, heavy fuel oil, residues and other hydrocarbons are tested by Intertek for aromatic content and poly-nuclear aromatic content.
We aimed to verify their discriminative properties and compare them with the motion capture analysis of finger tapping.
