Stroke is a leading cause of disability and many people require rehabilitation following a stroke. Telerehabilitation may be used to assist in assessment, traditional rehabilitation therapies, and support following discharge from hospital or inpatient rehabilitation. More recently, innovative models of care have been trialed using telehealth service delivery. This includes coaching, use of avatars to facilitate engagement, transition support, and combining telehealth with other technologies such as wearable sensors and family involvement in care. Current evidence suggests that telerehabilitation is not inferior to in-person therapy, although more evidence is required.
