Find out how you can implement and evaluate remote physiotherapy services during the Covid-19 pandemic
Remote physiotherapy delivery options are a component of digital physiotherapy and encompass all methods of providing physiotherapy where the patient is remote from the practitioner. Delivery methods include, but are not limited to, telephone, video, email, SMS, websites or apps. Remote physiotherapy delivery options can be used in triage, for assessment and diagnosis, to provide self-management information, for e-rehabilitation packages or for monitoring of long-term conditions, and they may have a different impact depending on the purpose.
