About

Telerehabilitation is a form of tele-treatment in which rehabilitation services are dispensed at patients' home utilizing video telecommunication services with real-time synchronous exchange of information. The advantages of telerehabilitation include reducing unnecessary travel to the hospital and person to person contact while maintaining social distancing. While some of the patients are truly staying at remote areas, others are unable to manage travel in the lockdown period. Telemedicine offers the opportunity to deliver rehabilitative services in the patients' home, closing geographic, physical, and motivational gaps. Punctuality on either side is also assured since the travel times are saved on both the ends. The purpose of the research study is to compare two standard of care rehabilitation methods (telerehabilitation vs in-person rehabilitation) following routine rotator cuff repair. Objectives include assessing range of motion and patient reported functional outcomes.
