Machine learning research within healthcare frequently lacks the public data needed to be fully reproducible and comparable. Datasets are often restricted due to privacy concerns and legal requirements that come with patient-related data. Consequentially, many algorithms and models get published on the same topic without a standard benchmark to measure against. Therefore, this paper presents HYPERAKTIV, a public dataset containing health, activity, and heart rate data from patients diagnosed with attention deficit hyperactivity disorder, better known as ADHD. The dataset consists of data collected from 51 patients with ADHD and 52 clinical controls. In addition to the activity and heart rate data, we also include a series of patient attributes such as their age, sex, and information about their mental state, as well as output data from a computerized neuropsychological test. Together with the presented dataset, we also provide baseline experiments using traditional machine learning algorithms to predict ADHD based on the included activity data. We hope that this dataset can be used as a starting point for computer scientists who want to contribute to the field of mental health, and as a common benchmark for future work in ADHD analysis.
