VRFCAT

Integrating Virtual Reality into the Assessment of Functioning in Clinical Trials

The Virtual Reality Functional Capacity Assessment Tool (VRFCAT)

VRFCAT is a computer-based test that simulates instrumental activities of daily living (iADLS) in a realistic and interactive virtual environment. With demonstrated sensitivity to basic functional capacity deficits, the VRFCAT was developed to improve clinical trials by detecting functionally meaningful improvements in patients’ everyday lives. The VRFCAT has numerous advantages over conventional assessments, and meets the highest psychometric and regulatory standards, with strong support from industry sponsors, NIH, and FDA as a functional co-primary outcome measure.

Advantages of the VRFCAT:
  • Accurate, performance-based results
  • Alternate forms for repeated testing
  • Scientifically validated
  • Used in multiple clinical trials
  • Eases administrator burden
  • Well-tolerated by patients
  • 24/7 technical support
  • Integrated data capture
