Mobile electronic devices have become integral tools in addressing the need for portable
assessment of cognitive function following neurocognitive/motor injury. SWAY Medical,
Inc., has employed mobile device motion-based technology in the SWAY Cognitive
Assessment (SWAY CA) application to assess cognitive function.
The purpose of this study was to assess whether the SWAY CA application (reaction time,
impulse control and inspective time) was able to reliably operate on different mobile
devices and operating systems (iOS, Android). The study further sought to assess the
validity of the SWAY CA application against the FDA approved ImPACT QT mobile device
Original Research, observational study of validity.
88 healthy, young adults, 18 to 48 years (mean= 22.09 ± sd=4.47 years) completed four,
randomized and counter-balanced, reaction time tests (2- SWAY RT, 2- ImPACT QT) using
different operating systems (iOS, Android) of 4 randomly assigned mobile devices.
ANOVAs reported the SWAY CA application (reaction time, impulse control, inspection
time) operated reliably with iPhone 6S, Samsung Galaxy S9, and iPad Pro 5 mobile devices
(p > 0.05), respectively. Google Pixel 3 reliability with SWAY CA application remains
undetermined. SWAY CA simple reaction motion measures were in agreement (r = -0.46 to
0.22, p ≤ 0.05) with several ImPACT QT reaction time measures. SWAY CA impulse control
and inspection time measures are weakly correlated (r = -0.25 to -0.46, p ≤ 0.05) with five
ImPACT QT reaction time measures.
The motion-based SWAY CA mobile device application appears to reliably operate when
being administered on different mobile devices and software operating systems.
Furthermore, the SWAY CA application appears to be comparable to the ImPACT QT and
serve as a valid tool for assessing reaction time measures.||en_US
