In the November edition of the Journal of Telemedicine and Telecare Tim Johansson, of  Ludwig Boltzmann Institute for Health Technology Assessment in Vienna conducted a systematic review of Telerehabilitation in stroke care http://www.jtt.rsmjournals.com/cgi/content/abstract/jtt.2010.100105v1

He reported that Home-based tele-rehabilitation interventions showed promising results in improving the health of stroke patients and in supporting caregivers with health professionals and participants reporting high levels of satisfaction and acceptance of tele-rehabilitation.

The HandTutor system has proven effective for patients in the home care environment both in the treatment of hand movement dysfunction for both acute and chronic stroke patients. More information on the HandTutor can be found at www.handtutor.com
