Just published! TRAIL, a lower extremity stroke rehabilitation program using video-conferencing technology, shows promising results

The TRAIL trial, which was run on the CanStroke platform, studied the feasibility of a progressive virtual exercise and self-management intervention in individuals with stroke.

Check out the results that show this approach is feasible and appears to have positive influences on mobility, lower extremity impairment, strength, and goal attainment.

Community-based telerehabilitation programs, such as TRAIL, could extend the continuum of care during the transition back to community post-discharge, or during global disruptions, such as COVID-19.
