Assessment and Rehabilitation Tools
MegaTeam applications embed cognitive assessment and rehabilitation tasks within an engaging video game environment.
The Problem We Solve
MegaTeam assessment and rehabilitation products are built on established methodologies for the measurement of cognitive abilities in populations with attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (“ADHD”).
Methodologies commonly used today involve repetitive performance of tasks using a digital interface. Research has found that patients, in particular those with symptoms of ADHD, have difficulty completing the necessary regimen of tasks due to lack of engagement. Additionally, these tasks are often administered in a clinical setting, often resulting in extended time in clinical settings for the patient and their accompanying parent or guardian.
Our products have been developed to address these primary concerns as well as to enable a breadth of cognitive processes/abilities to be assessed and an individualized cognitive rehabilitation program to be administered remotely.
ADHD products were developed in collaboration with the Hospital for Sick Children in Toronto (“SickKids”) and certain elements of the MegaTeam products have been incorporated under exclusive license from them.
MegaTeam applications seek to improve attention, learning, and behavior in individuals with ADHD. MegaTeam was designed and programmed with the intention of providing engagement comparable to video game play; throughout the design process, we have utilized experts in children’s digital media.
MegaTeam applications are available on all major platforms including PC, Mac, Android, and iOS systems. Our applications may be used in a clinic, a patient’s home, or remotely.
MegaTeam products include:
- Stop Signal Reaction Time Assessment
- N-Back Assessment
- Inhibitory Control Rehabilitation
- Working Memory Rehabilitation
We are planning to develop a broader suite of cognitive tasks and rehabilitation tools in order to expand the mental health indications served by MegaTeam.

Stop Signal Reaction Time (“SSRT”) Task
The stop signal reaction time (“SSRT”) task measures inhibition of a response that has already been initiated. Impulsivity is both a facet of personality and a major component of various disorders, including ADHD. Response inhibition and impulse control are highly correlated with ADHD traits. MegaTeam was designed to be a more engaging version of a classic approach to measuring response inhibition and impulse control. MegaTeam may be of use as part of a strategy to assess and monitor ADHD.
The N-Back task is used as an assessment to measure a part of working memory. Studies have found significant lower group results for ADHD in spatial and verbal working memory tasks. Improved working memory is believed to benefit a range of cognitive skills in children with ADHD. MegaTeam was designed to be a more engaging version of a classic approach to measuring working memory. The N-Back task may be used by clinicians, researchers, and healthcare providers to assess or diagnose ADHD, and also to monitor patient progress over longer periods of time.
