WSC 2022 | Is telerehabilitation ready for primetime?

Dorcas Gandhi, MPT, Christian Medical College & Hospital, Ludhiana, Punjab, India, discusses the use of telerehabilitation after stroke. The use of remote rehabilitation techniques is on the rise, due to both an increase in supportive literature as well as growing demand following the changes made to many healthcare systems as part of the COVID-19 pandemic. When asked if telerehabilitation is ready for primetime, Prof. Gandhi notes that a lack of high-quality evidence is holding back its use. Data supports its role as an adjunct to conventional therapy, but more robust trial evidence is needed before it can be determined if telerehabilitation alone is sufficient. This interview took place at the World Stroke Congress 2022 in Singapore.
