The Rural Connection, Spring 2015
Veterans who reside in rural areas often have limited access to rehabilitation services after sustaining a stroke. The VA Office of Rural Health stroke telerehabilitation project’s goal is to deliver in-home physical rehabilitation in an engaging, yet challenging personalized experience while increasing health care access to Veterans, especially those in under-served rural areas.
