Telerehabilitation Success

Telerehabilitation is by now not such a new concept in the physical therapy world. What is new, though,  is how it has expanded to provide much needed rehabilitation for severly ill and disabled individuals no matter where in the world they live or where their doctors and therapists are located. Many patients who have suffered strokes, brain or spinal cord injuries, Parkinson’s, CP, MS or other upper or lower limb surgeries or diseases who need to or prefer to remain at their home rather than in a clinic or rehab center can take advantage of systems like the TUTORs. Developed in 2004 with just the HANDTUTOR and later expanded to include the ARMTUTOR, LEGTUTOR and 3DTUTOR this system has become one of the leading physical therapy solutions to so many disabled patients.

Consisting of ergonomically designed gloves and braces and motivating and challenging games developed on exclusive software the TUTORs allow the patient to practice isolated and/or interjoint coordination exercises. These exercises help to prevent the development of compensatory movement patterns. The software allows the therapist to fully customize the exercises to the patient’s ability. For one such amazing success story go to this link.
