Innovation in services

The Research and Innovation Area of the Institut Guttmann works on developing neurorehabilitation services, preventing and detecting problems, and promoting brain health.


Guttmann, NeuroPersonalTrainer® (GNPT®), is an online cognitive telerehabilitation platform aimed at neurorehabilitation professionals who wish to use new technologies to offer effective and efficient personalised treatments to patients who have suffered a neurological problem.

There are many possible applications, including: stroke and other acquired brain injuries, dementia, Alzheimer’s disease, Parkinson’s disease, multiple sclerosis, schizophrenia, bipolar disorder, intellectual disability, etc. 

It has been used on over 12,000 patients in more than 210 centres around the world, together with clinical validation studies, making it the platform of choice among rehabilitation centres. In addition, it comes under the category of a "medical device", being accredited by the AEMPS (Spanish Agency for Medicine and Health Products).

Cognitest is a cognitive performance exploration app that uses specific tasks that must be done with concentration for approximately 20 minutes in order to measure aspects related to memory, attention, logic and processing speed. 

Non-invasive brain stimulation

Transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS) and electrical brain stimulation are non-invasive techniques which allow us to modulate neural changes in a safe and painless way. They can be combined with other techniques to improve their effectiveness. Nowadays we apply these techniques in treatments for which their effectiveness is scientifically proven. You can find more information on the treatments performed at Guttmann Barcelona’s Brain Health and Neurorehabilitation Institute.
