Diagnostic methods of attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) have soft neurological signs (SNS). Motion of pronation and supination is one of SNS tests. When diagnosing ADHD children, Medical doctors observe the regularity of children's pronation and supination. It is hoped that a quantitative and simple evaluation method is established. This study's aim is to compare differences of pronation and supination between typically developing children (TDC) and ADHD children in order to establish a more quantitative evaluation system. The subjects are 85 TDC and 29 ADHD (children aged 7-11). As results, we could obtain different motion between TDC and ADHD children by our system. These differences have the potential to become diagnostic criteria for ADHD.
