Rehabilitation during the pandemic using remote therapy
Telerehabilitation (or TeleRehab) is the delivery of rehabilitation services via remote methods such as video-based and telephone
We have been successfully using this approach since 2020, utilising tried and tested digital platforms e.g. Zoom, Skype, WhatsApp and FaceTime, to make our specialist services easier to access
TeleRehab enables people to maintain regular contact within the comfort of their own surroundings for exercise sessions, advice and review appointments.
Some initial assessments can also be carried out via TeleRehab with many people often choosing to combine TeleRehab consultations with face-to-face appointments in their home, out in their local community or at a clinic.
