This seminar is presented by Terry Ellis, Associate Professor and Chair, Department of Physical Therapy and Athletic Training, Boston University.
As the result of a global pandemic, access to in-person rehabilitation professionals has been drastically reduced. Therefore, it has become increasingly challenging for many persons, with a variety of chronic conditions, to access the evidence-based exercise programs necessary to optimize recovery and overall outcomes. Furthermore, without the continued support of a rehabilitation professional over time, it is difficult for many to successfully implement and sustain exercise programs over the long-term in order to realize the full benefits.
The pandemic highlights the need for better healthcare delivery models to meet the needs of the patients we serve. Advances in mobile health technologies provides opportunities to address these challenges and bring the expertise and evidence directly to patients. This presentation will highlight the advances and opportunities associated with mobile health technologies with a focus on rehabilitation and exercise applications.
