Powerful, Easy to Use
The program is menu-driven. Tests can be administered, stored and printed without extensive knowledge of computers. The main menu from which you can start testing a new patient, look into the database, print results etc
Most European languages are covered by Fepsy. Translations are now available in:
The Fepsy-system is written in C# and it runs under Microsoft-Windows 7-11.
All results are stored in a database, of which the size is only limited by the amount of hard disk storage capacity. Hereby the system can easily recognize a patient who is tested before, and compare former test results. The number of variables stored per test is sufficient to answer most scientific questions in the future (for instance, of all individual items the reaction time is stored).
In the database menu, from which you can look into data from individual patients, the database can be converted into ASCII format (statistical analysis) or delimited ASCII format (use of other database programs).
Apart from the database a print file of test results will be made on each new test date. ASCII output per test can be made for statistical analysis (simple SPSS jobs are supplemented). Delimited ASCII output can be generated for import in Paradox or Access.
Fepsy supports a simultaneous connection with the EEG. You can choose for an option to send output through the serial port or parallel port to get ASCII output (readable text) on one channel of your EEG.
Touch Screen facility
The Recognition Tasks, the CVST and the Corsi Block test are designed for a Touch Screen, but also works with a mouse. Any type of up to date PC will work. Norms have been gathered for different age levels. Fepsy is at this moment in use in 100 Institutes in the Netherlands, and 225 institutes in other countries. The program is available at The Psychology Company.
The term ‘automated testing’ applies only to the administration of the tests and the generation of results. In no way an automatic assessment of patients capacities is meant. The interpretation of the test results should be reserved to (neuro)psychologists only. The instructions should be given either by a psychologist or a psychological assistant. The patient should not be left alone during testing so that questions can be answered. Also, the patient can be observed while performing the tests.
Fepsy (Ferrum + Psyche) has a long history dating back to the early days of the computer. The application of computers in psychology has opened new avenues in psychological research. Test administration and editing of results are standardized. Much knowledge has been gathered by using the program in research on side-effects of drugs. This resulted in multi-centered, multinational studies. Recently a new Windows version 3.3 was launched, see Prices/Demo.
