About

Telerehabilitation is an effective rehabilitation method that allows patients to receive physiotherapy remotely in their homes. The purpose of this study was to investigate the effects of home-based remote group training for balance and mobility on activities and body functions.

Full description

Patients in the chronic post-stroke phase will be assessed for balance and mobility before and after remotely conducted group training. The training will last for 6 weeks, with two 60-minute sessions of balance and mobility training per week. Two consecutive groups will participate. The participants's balance and weight-bearing symmetry will be comprehensive assessed, as well their sit-to-stand ability, walking speed, and satisfaction with the remote training. Detailed inclusion and exclusion criteria are specified in the appropriate section.
