Abstract

Recent studies demonstrated potential of home-based telerehabilitation in older adults and individuals with mobility impairment. However limited evidence exists on feasibility of home-based telerehabilitation in older adults after hip fracture. The aims of this study were: (1) to assess impact of home-based telerehabilitation of community dwelling older adults in post-acute phase of recovery after hip fracture on mobility, psycho-behavioral factors, quality of life, and satisfaction with care; (2) to estimate acceptance of the telerehabilitation system and adherence to the exercise program. We found statistically significant improvements in exercise self-efficacy, mobility, quality of life, and patient satisfaction after 30-day hip fracture telerehabilitation. Home telerehabilitation may be a viable model for post-acute hip fracture recovery and it is warranted for further evaluation in clinical trials.
