Telerehabilitation: from need to resource

Today, we know how important and necessary continuity of care is. It is increasingly frequent for patients to find themselves alone and having to continue at home the therapies started during hospital admission or outpatient care.

Henesis works precisely on these topics.
After an in-depth analysis of the literature and market research aimed at understanding the needs of rehabilitation experts and patients, we have come to the conclusion that telemedicine and telerehabilitation are not just technologies, but represent a fundamental resource to meet their needs.

First of all, tele-rehabilitation copes with the current crisis caused by Covid-19.

In addition, it represents a convenient service for patients and caregivers, flexible and easy to access.

The exercises performed in telerehabilitation are useful for increasing motivation and confidence in exercising, as well as for self-monitoring health conditions (1).

In addition, telerehabilitation decreases the challenge related to the need to commute for receiving or offering rehab care, both in terms of time and cost (2).

Ultimately, telerehabilitation has the potential to expand and decentralize service delivery and reduce global health disparities in the access to rehabilitation services (3).
