Fundación Intras

Fundación INTRAS is a non-profit organization whose objective since its creation in 1994 was to help people with disabilities because of a serious mental illness to recover their life project. It does this through the implementation of resources for health, education, labor, residential, leisure and free time ... and the development of research to help social and labor inclusion of these people, thereby improving their quality of life. INTRAS Foundation works for the development and promotion of activities aimed at assisting, researching, evaluating and disseminating actions in the socio-health sector. It also intends, through its actions, to collaborate in the progress and development of the Castilian and Leonese society in order to achieve its Mission. INTRAS Foundation works mainly with people with disabilities because of a serious and prolonged mental illness. Some of their actions are also aimed at older people or those who suffer from some cognitive impairment such as dementia. INTRAS lends its activity under the maxim of the recovery of the vital project of the person affected by a disability. This philosophy contemplates the evolution of the person with disability due to mental illness from the sanitary devices and from psychosocial rehabilitation to employment, through social resources, among which are the occupational centers. All this supported by the existence of possibilities of accommodation, of programs or services of education or training and of alternatives for the leisure and free time of these people. INTRAS is a reference in the field of geriatric treatment through cross-disciplinary programs that combine health and social interventions, promoting cognitive rehabilitation from a clinical standpoint and social integration of the elderly from a psychosocial perspective. Through its R&D&I area, INTRAS promotes the development and validation of new technologies to be applied in the field of neuropsychological rehabilitation in order to provide high quality socio-health assistance for older people with Alzheimer and other dementia. GRADIOR® software has been developed by INTRAS for rehabilitation of cognitive functions such as attention, memory, perception, orientation, calculus, etc. It is also useful in the intervention with people with schizophrenia, cerebral paralysis, mental disability and brain injury. Every day, 1700 users develop cognitive stimulation exercises thanks to the 200 GRADIOR® licenses and its spin-off products that are running in more than 400 care centres in Spain. Furthermore, INTRAS is an active member of relevant European networks in the field such as INTERDEM (Early Detection & Timely Intervention in Dementia), the IAGG (International Association of Gerontology and Geriatrics), MHE (Mental Health Europe) and EPR (European Platform for Rehabilitation). INTRAS participates in INNOVAge project as a technical partner working closely with the Castilla y León Regional Government to bring together to the consortium knowledge and lessons learned in related past projects in R&D and assistance in the field of ageing, and benefit from experiences coming from more expert EU partners in clustering. Through its permanent cooperation with the Regional Government, delivering services for elderly people and creating models of practice, the INNOVAge project will enable INTRAS to focus on developing the link between planning for independent living of the elderly and new technologies, and in particular the integration of eco-innovation in ITC applications for the elderly. Since INTRAS plays a major role in regional projects related to new technologies development and application to the elderly, it will assist with identifying, interviewing and motivating relevant stakeholders for the cluster development, analyzing tendencies of business development in the sector and strategic segmentation of the potential cluster, as well as elaborating the action plan, together the Regional Government of Social Services, for reinforcing the competitiveness of the cluster in the long term.
