Abstract

Date Presented 03/27/20

In the emerging field of telerehab, OTs can provide rehabilitation in novel ways, such as by using apps or other technologies. Adherence to home exercise is a critical part of sustaining therapeutic gains, but often home exercise is not completed and function may decline after discharge. We show how an app was used to track home exercises, as well as facilitators of and barriers to use. Such information will be important for practitioners when considering using apps and other technologies.
