Telerehab toolkit

Welcome to our website!

Telerehabilitation (or telerehab) is the delivery of rehabilitation services via remote methods such as video-based (online) and telephone. 

This toolkit of resources is a guide for health and social care practitioners, patients and their families. It is designed to help in undertaking effective remote consultations for people with physical disabilities and movement impairment, including people recovering from COVID-19. 

The content is based on literature searches, discussions with over 100 practitioners, students, patients and their families, and a survey of 247 UK health and social care practitioners.

The Telerehab toolkit is evolving
We're at the start of our journey, working with patients and practitioners to ensure that we provide the best information available at this time. Keep visiting our pages over the coming months and you will see changes as we take on board feedback from our stakeholders.

If you would like to share your constructive thoughts and suggestions we'd love to hear them. Please email
