About

Telerehabilitation refers to the use of Information and Communication Technologies (ICT) to provide rehabilitation services to people remotely in their homes or other environments. By using ICT, patient access to care can be improved and the reach of clinicians can extend beyond the physical walls of a traditional healthcare facility, thus expanding continuity of care to persons with disabling conditions. The concept of telecare, when telerehabilitation is used to deliver services to patients in their homes or other living environments, empowers and enables individuals to take control of the management of their medical needs and interventions by enabling personalized care, choice and personal control Research Goal and Objectives To investigate the clinical feasibility and usability of the Gertner Tele-Motion-Rehab system in post-stroke patients, in their homes. To evaluate Gertner Tele-Motion-Rehab system clinical improvement within the patient's home in terms of: function of the weak upper extremity performance of ADL

Description:
The clients will receive tele-rehabilitation treatment via the Gertner Tele-Motion Rehabilitation system with remote online monitoring by the therapist. Treatment feedback is given in the form of Knowledge of results (game scores) and Knowledge of performance (feedback of compensatory movements made while using the upper extremity) to enhance motor learning. The software generates a report which includes the duration and type of exercises performed by the subject.
