Telerehabilitation is defined as a set of tools, procedures, and protocols to deliver rehabilitation programs remotely. It involves the use of various communication technologies to efficiently provide rehabilitation services distantly or via some other remote environment. After an orthopedic procedure, physical rehabilitation is essential to restore joint's function, to improve quality of life as well as to relieve pain, to recovery independence. The effectiveness of telerehabilitation has been studied in literature. The aim of this narrative review is to update the current evidence, evaluate the efficacy of telerehabilitation after hip, and knee prosthesis surgery for end stage arthrosis. Results show that it is useful to integrate traditional interventions with telerehabilitation to accelerate efficiency in existing healthcare delivery systems. Future high-methodological-quality studies should be conducted to evaluate the long-term efficacy and safety of innovative technologies.

Abstract

Telerehabilitation is defined as a set of tools, procedures, and protocols to deliver rehabilitation programs remotely. It involves the use of various communication technologies to efficiently provide rehabilitation services distantly or via some other remote environment. After an orthopedic procedure, physical rehabilitation is essential to restore joint's function, to improve quality of life as well as to relieve pain, to recovery independence. The effectiveness of telerehabilitation has been studied in literature. The aim of this narrative review is to update the current evidence, evaluate the efficacy of telerehabilitation after hip, and knee prosthesis surgery for end stage arthrosis. Results show that it is useful to integrate traditional interventions with telerehabilitation to accelerate efficiency in existing healthcare delivery systems. Future high-methodological-quality studies should be conducted to evaluate the long-term efficacy and safety of innovative technologies.
