Remote Rehabilitation for Stroke Survivors

Remote Rehabilitation for Stroke Survivors

A new research project led by the University of Nottingham, titled TELSTAR (TELerehabilitation in STroke CARe), aims to investigate the benefits of telerehabilitation for people affected by stroke.  

Telerehabilitation involves remotely providing rehabilitation services, such as assessment, therapy, and education, using various technologies like telephone, video conferencing, digital applications, and virtual reality programs.  

The study, funded by the Stroke Association, seeks to understand whether, how, and for whom stroke telerehabilitation might be beneficial in community settings. The research team, in collaboration with rehabilitation professionals, stroke survivors, family carers, Integrated Stroke Delivery Networks, and NHS England, will develop recommendations for practice considering the needs and priorities of clinicians and stroke survivors.  

The project will focus on inclusivity, reaching out to diverse ethnic and socioeconomic backgrounds often excluded from previous research, to ensure equitable access and benefits from telerehabilitation. The findings are expected to enhance understanding, inform improvements in clinical practice, and contribute to the development of a specialist network focused on stroke telerehabilitation.
