“The computer is very good in recognizing a posttraumatic stress syndrome, with a success percentage of 82%. This is very high. It is as high as a normal psychiatrist. However, it is a lot faster.”
– Prof. dr. ir. Theo de Vries, until 1 July 2016 involved with the Department Research Methodology, Measuring Methods and Data Analysis, University of Twente, and one of the initiators of the PTSS Screener
“This technology offers a unique opportunity to transform the diagnostic process.”

“The PTSS Screener makes it possible to recognize PTSS more often in an earlier stadium. Next to the financial savings for society, there is the gain for the person.”
– Prof. dr. ir. Bernard Veldkamp, Methodologist at the University of Twente, and one of the initiators of the PTSS Screener
“The PTSD Screener maximizes flexibility for people to get on tests whenever they like wherever they are through an online system to get accurate, fast, and evidence-based results, which is essentially important for the PTSD early detection, early intervention and early treatment.”
