Expectation of Driving Performance in Young Adults With ADHD Assessed by Driving Simulator and Seat Pressure Mapping (no)
Adolescents suffering of ADHD may have impaired driving performance. The investigators would like to check the differences in driving performance in young adults(aged: 15-18 years) with ADHD by driving simulator and seat pressure mapping with and without methylphenidate medication.

|Study Design:||Observational Model: Case Control
Time Perspective: Prospective
|Official Title:||Expectation of Driving Performance in Young Adults With ADHD Assessed by Driving Simulator and Seat Pressure Mapping|
|Study Start Date:||November 2011|
|Estimated Study Completion Date:||December 2011|
|Estimated Primary Completion Date:||December 2011 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)|
30 adolescents who are treated with Methylphenidate will perform the driving simulator and seat pressure mapping tests, in 2 different days : 1. with their regular methylphenidate medication and 2: without the methylphenidate medication after a 4 days washout period. Results will be recorded and statistical test will be performed.
30 adolescents : control group , not suffering from ADHD and without methylphenidate medication will perform the driving simulator and seat pressure mapping tests. Results will be recorded and statistical test will be performed.
Adolescents with ADHD who are treated with one of the methylphenidate medication that is in use in Israel(Ritalin,Ritalin SR,Concerta,Ritalin LA)will be tested by driving simulator and seat pressure mapping by 2 stages: 1.when they are taking the medication that they are taking every day to control ADHD and: 2. without medication ( after 4 day washout period).
