Remote Rehab: Care for People Everywhere
The topic of making healthcare available has been a hot-button issue in our country for the last few years. This need has spurred a new trend that is sweeping the healthcare industry and addressing availability problems. TeleMedicine helps those that need the treatment and care by being a resource when they don’t have immediate or convenient access the care they need.
Originating in the healthcare industry, this trend has been slowly become more common in the rehab industry. There are many patients with conditions like Parkinson’s disease and multiple sclerosis that have the mobility restrictions that make it difficult to make it to a clinic to receive the therapy they need.

The Solution: Horizon Rehab’s “Remote Rehab”
Horizon’s Remote Rehab program offers an easily-accessible method to get some of the therapy and exercise that these patients are looking for from the comfort of their own homes. All a patient needs is a computer, a web cam, microphone, an active email account and an Internet connection to login to the portal.

The Instruction: How Remote Rehab Works
Horizon Rehab will provide an instructor to lead the class in mostly chair exercises that all patients can do on their own. The instructor will be able to see the patients, and the patients will have the option of showing themselves to other patients if they wish. Once the patient has signed in, they will see the instructor and other participants that are willing to show themselves. The instructor will lead the class through the exercises that they have on the agenda while giving feedback to the participants on an as-needed basis.
