As the number of persons with disabilities increases because of factors such as aging combined with chronic illnesses, the challenge of providing rehabilitation also increases. Unfortunately, financial considerations have shortened length of stay in acute and subacute settings and reduced rehabilitation services. With earlier discharges, there is an increased need to deliver services to patients in their homes in an efficient and cost-effective manner. Telerehabilitation is an emerging practice that uses communications technology for the remote delivery of rehabilitative care. The Low ADL Monitoring Program is a telerehabilitation program designed to deliver rehabilitation services through the provision of home environmental interventions, together with communications technology and care coordination.
