Geriatrics and health of the elderly


Innobrain is a collaborative industrial research, experimental development and innovation project in the area of rehabilitation and cognitive stimulation of patients with the neurodegenerative and psychiatric illnesses with most impact in developed societies: acquired brain damage (ABD), schizophrenia, dementia and bipolar disorder.

The project seeks to consolidate and reinforce the digital cognitive rehabilitation platform Guttmann, NeuroPersonalTrainer®, Guttmann, NeuroPersonalTrainer®, a tool developed in collaboration with technological companies, universities and partners in different clinical areas.
Guttmann, NeuroPersonalTrainer® offers personalised, intensive and monitored cognitive rehabilitation or stimulation services based on evidence from patients with cognitive impairment or impairment as a consequence of a neurological or psychiatric illness, dementia or developmental disorder.

During the project, the requirements of the patients in the different areas are identified along with any existing technological barriers which may limit the application of ITC in rehabilitation and distance the patients from the benefits they can receive from intensives and personalised rehabilitation treatments.

Innobrain forms part of NextHealth, the RIS3CAT community led by Biocat. The Innobrain project consortium is made up of 11 partners and is based in Catalonia. Innobrain includes experts in clinical fields with experience in the areas of mental health, brain damage, schizophrenia, spinal cord injury, dementia and bipolar disorder.

The Innobrain Group is made up of the Institut Guttmann, the Parc Taulí, the August Pi i Sunyer Institute for Biomedical Research, the Biomedical Research Institute of Girona and the Foundation for Health and Ageing of the UAB.

Also part of the consortium are the Institute of Artificial Intelligence, expert in technology in the field of decision-making support systems, the Computer Vision Centre, expert in computer vision, Starlab Barcelona, specialists in neurostimulation, Sky & Earth with experience in interactive digital videos, and Eurecat and ICA as technology companies with experience in the field of health.

The project is financed by Action and the European Union from the European Regional Development Fund.
