New techniques for
sensory, physical and
cognitive stimulation

 

The NUTESCOTI project is a multicenter research project to study the application of immersive reality in 3 different profiles of users. This project has received more than 111000€ in funding from the Ministry of Industry, Trade and Tourism from Spain (MINCOTUR), through Next Generation European funds.

 

The consortium partners include 3 health and social service providers, Consorci Sanitari de Terrassa, Fundació Villablanca and Esport 3, each of them applying the same intervention program with different users profiles. The Mental Health Cluster and the Catalan tech company Qualud also participate in the project.

 

The 3 different users profiles are the following:

Consorci Sanitari de Terrassa: Patients with persistent COVID symptoms.

Fundació Villablanca: People with intellectual disabilities and mental disorders.

Esport3: People over 60 years old who live independently.

Objectives and methodology

 

The main objectives of the NUTESCOTI project are:
• The experimental development of innovative therapeutic processes based on immersive reality tools to improve the treatments in the field of Mental Health, Neurosciences and Active Ageing.
• Validation of the technological potential of Broomx immersive technology (economic, operational, clinical) to promote its consolidation in the social and health industry.

 

Number of participants: 90 users from the 3 different groups, 45 of them receiving the intervention and 45 being a control group.

 

16 therapeutic sessions offered to the 3 group profiles during 8 weeks, with a duration of 55 minutes each session.

 

Prepost evaluation that will measure aspects related with cognition, mental health, fatigue, well-being, quality of life and physical condition.
