CBS Cognitive Health Assessments
The B.E.T Center Offers Cognitive Assessments to objectively measure aspects of your cognitive function - like short-term memory, concentration, and reasoning abilities - that are key to your quality of life. The CBS is a psychological assessment tool that helps our Doctors and clinicians individualize treatment plans according to your needs. This information in conjunction with the Brain Map offer the insights our clinicians need to properly diagnose and treat the clinical needs of our clients.
CBS Health: An Engaging and Scientifically-Validated Cognitive Assessment Platform
The B.E.T Center uses a leading cognitive assessment platform, CBS Health, to quickly measure brain health. Your clinician will offer these measures to assess, monitor, and manage core areas of cognition to ensure that your training program is on the right track.
The CBS Health tasks have been validated by decades of scientific research, and are proven to measure the most important aspects of cognition. Performance is directly linked with the areas of your brain that are active when you’re at your sharpest. But more importantly, the tasks are fun, and only take 1.5 - 3 minutes each to complete. Now, not only will you feel better, but you can objectively track how your brain is responding to the training program.
WHY MEASURING COGNITIVE HEALTH IMPORTANT?
We all have a subjective idea of how our brains are doing—some days we feel “off” or have “brain fog,” while other days we feel like we can take on the world. But how much better are we on the good days? Are lifestyle or health changes making a difference? That’s where cognitive assessment comes in. By putting a number to these subjective feelings, we can discover what is causing the good days in order to have more of them. When your brain is performing, every activity in your daily life will be easier, from remembering where you parked your car to doing your taxes.
IS THIS AN IQ TEST?
CBS Health assessments are not an IQ test! Think of it more like a blood pressure cuff for your brain. There’s no judgment, and the goal is progress over time, because we acknowledge that brain health changes from day to day. That’s why we believe we can improve or maintain your performance through our program, and now include cognitive assessments as a standard part of the treatment.
ARE COGNITIVE ASSESSMENTS RELEVANT TO ME?
Cognitive health affects almost every part of your life. If you are visiting The B.E.T Center to treat a specific ailment, it likely has a cognitive outcome—even conditions that have traditionally been seen as purely physical, such as pain, have cognitive effects. You’re not thinking well if you’re not feeling well. Discuss cognitive assessments with your clinician to see how the brain benefits of the program can help improve your life.
WHAT DO RESULTS LOOK LIKE?
A sample CBS Health report is available here. The report is designed to be easy to read and understand. It becomes more valuable with each additional assessment, showing your progress and letting you know when significant changes occur. Your clinician will review your report after each assessment in order to measure progress and make adjustments as necessary.
HOW DO I GET STARTED?
To get started as part of the program, sign up for a consultation and baseline assessment! We can accommodate you in the clinic if you do not have the technology to support the CBS Assessments, or you can take it through email in the comfort of your own home.
