In Pro-Lab, we have created the most modern psychotechnical laboratory in the world! It owes its beginning to the Team of experts for inventions at the Silesian University of Technology, with whom we have refreshed the „old”, well-known laboratory of psychotechnical tests and created everything afresh, with the use of new technologies – virtual reality, computer applications, Big data with cybersecurity.
We invite you to perform obligatory psychological tests for the professions requiring special psychophysical fitness. Both those who represent traditional industry and the industry of the future! The value of our psychological laboratory is its mobility! We invite both individual and institutional clients. We specialise in tailored diagnosis!
Our psychological laboratory brings psychological tests into another, modern dimensions in which it is not necessary to queue at the clinic, workplaces, in order to perform obligatory psychotechnical tests. Today you can do it from every place in the world over the Internet! It is not only saving, it is also a comfort, convenience and unprecedented measurement precision, accuracy and reliability of the diagnostics.
Our devices and instrumentation have been submitted for patent application, below is an exemplary diagnostic list of our achievements:
P. 428370 „Device for conducting psychological tests in terms of professional suitability and qualifications for work”;
P. 428372 „Apparatus for the measurement of the psychophysical fitness of a human”
P. 428373 „Apparatus for assessing the coordination of divisibility and shifting of attention in simulated difficult physical work conditions.”
P. 428519 „Peripheral device supporting psychological tests”
P. 428520 „A device that monitors the subject’s behaviour during diagnosis.”
P. 428022 „A device for improving the workplace safety”
