    Introduction: Telerehabilitation is a relatively new method of service delivery in which rehabilitation services are provided to patients in remote locations or their own homes using information and communication technologies. The purported advantage of this approach is that it increases the accessibility of rehabilitation services to people that are isolated or have been discharged from formal rehabilitation services. In addition, there may be cost savings associated.
    Objectives: This Cochrane review aimed to determine whether telerehabilitation leads to improved ability to perform activities of daily living among stroke survivors, when compared with in-person rehabilitation.
