Tutor System Expertise Available through Telerehabilitation

Telerehabilitation is the delivery of rehabilitation services from a distance using telecommunication technology, ranging from the telephone to more complex systems involving the Internet and videoconferencing equipment. Services may include consultation, mentoring, education, support, treatment monitoring, functional assessment, and/or therapy. Telerehabilitation has been proposed as a means to provide access to rehabilitation services for stroke survivors who have residual functional impairments at discharge from inpatient care when travel to outpatient rehabilitation facilities is hindered by cost, distance, or cognitive or mobility issues. The goal of telerehabilitation is to improve patient function and reduce long-term disability and associated healthcare costs.
Aside from the newly developed Tutor system being used in leading U.S. and foreign hospitals and clinics the technology has also been developed to allow patients avail themselves of the  devices through the use of telerehabilitation.
The Tutor system consists of ergonomic wearable devices together with powerful dedicated rehabilitation software. It is designed for those who have head, trunk, upper and lower extremity movement dysfunction.
The Tutor system consists of motivating and challenging games that allow the patient to practice isolated and/or interjoint coordination exercises. Controlled exercise practice will help to prevent the development of compensatory movement patterns. The dedicated software allows the therapist to fully customize the exercises to the patient’s movement ability. In addition the therapist can objectively and quantitatively evaluate and report on the treatment progress. The rehabilitation system optimizes the patient’s motor, sensory and cognitive performance and allows the patient to better perform everyday functional tasks to improve their quality of life. All of this is available at the home of the patient through telerehabilitation.
The Tutor system is FDA and CE certified. See http://www.HandTutor.com for more information.
