Telerehabilitation SIG

The Telerehabilitation Special Interest Group's mission is to enhance access to rehabilitation services through the use of telehealth technologies. The TeleRehabilitation SIG includes rehabilitation engineers, assistive technologists, rehabilitation physicians, occupational therapists, physical therapists, speech-language pathologists, educators, rehabilitation nurses, neuropsychologists, and telehealth and disability policy specialists involved in applying computer-based technologies and telecommunications to improve access to rehabilitation services and support independent living. The Telerehabilitation SIG works to develop innovative systems "tools" to be used for telerehabilitation, to collect data of evidence-based outcomes of telerehabilitation clinical applications and acts as a resource for reimbursement issues.
