Abstract

The goal of this project was to objectively assess potential impact of home-based physical telerehabilitation program on functional outcomes in seniors with mobility limitations. Nine consecutive seniors with mobility limitations were enrolled into a 12-week physical telerehabilitation program. At the end of the program, the mean time that patients took to walk 25 feet decreased from 13.5 to 10.6 seconds, and the mean distance that patients walked in 6 minutes improved from 722.4 to 805.7 feet. The Berg Balance Score score also increased from 36.6 to 41.7 over the 12-week period. All changes were statistically significant (p<0.05). Patients demonstrated very high acceptance of the home-based program.
