Virtual Rehabilitation: Why to Consider, Who is it for?
The COVID pandemic has brought unprecedented changes not just in our everyday lives but in healthcare delivery too. Elective surgeries are being massively cancelled or postponed in hospitals in order to free up the hospital beds for critical COVID patients. However, delaying time-sensitive recovery care may deteriorate the patient health and quality of life leading to relapse and avoidable casualties and deaths. Fret not; virtual rehabilitation is here to bring quality recovery care to your home.
Virtual rehabilitation provides access to infection-free, non-COVID care to palliative patients and those seeking critical care to resume to their normal lives. Also referred to as ‘telerehabilitation’, this is a highly effective method to enhance or replace conventional rehabilitation treatments when geographic, physical and cognitive barriers pose as challenges. The exponential growth of internet and technology has realized the possibility of virtual rehabilitation to new frontiers.

Why to Consider Virtual Rehab:
Rehabilitation strategies followed by a critical illness or an injury helps in maximizing functional independence and improving overall quality of life.

In the absence of quality recovery care, those who underwent prolonged hospital care could suffer from immediate to long-term consequences.
Listed below are reasons to consider Virtual Rehab:
- Intensive multidisciplinary rehabilitation sessions guided by trained therapists can improve functional outcomes in patients recovering from stroke, cardiac complications, neuro and orthopedic surgeries etc.
- Inactive lifestyle and lack of physical exercises during these lockdown days can deteriorate the health of patients recovering from any type of surgeries.
- Traveling to rehabilitation centers, outpatient clinics or hospitals regularly to undergo recovery treatments including Physiotherapy, Respiratory therapy, Occupational therapy etc. will not be feasible during the pandemic.
