What is Telehealth
Telehealth is not a completely new concept, although it has primarily been restricted to small-scale deployments during the course of academic studies. Typically, home-based tele-rehabilitation is an alternative way to provide care to stroke survivors who cannot access a rehab facility or live in resource limited environments such as rural settings.
COVID-19 is limiting stroke survivors’ access to
outpatient rehab, leading to rapid expansion of
telehealth options, which are now covered by
many insurance providers.
Clinical studies demonstrate that at-home therapy with the Motus Home Hand or Foot Mentors provides comparable care to traditional rehabilitation.
How do Telehealth Sessions Work?
During a Telehealth session the patient will interact
with their PT or OT via a video conference system.
The patient will also be using a telehealth robotic
device such as the Motus Home Hand or Foot
Mentor which will assist a patient’s movements and
provide real time feedback to their clinician. The PT
or OT will control the device from a remote location
and provide skilled services through a video call
similar to an in-person visit.
The key differentiator is how the patient and their
PT/OT give each other feedback. Since the PT/OT
cannot have physical contact with the patient, they
control the device remotely. The Motus Device acts
as the hands, ears and eyes of the therapist to help
evaluate the needs of their patients. This creates a
complete contactless system for providing rehab.
Is a PT or OT involved in Telehealth rehabilitation?
The telehealth session is always conducted by a licensed PT or OT.
How do Motus Home Devices help your Telehealth sessions?
PTs and OTs are able to monitor movement and provide skilled interventions through the devices. In real time, PTs or OTs can diagnose movement limitations stemming from impairments in dexterity, range of motion, and strength.
The device itself will assist the patient with movement during the sessions. The PT/OT can adjust the level of assistance or resistance needed by the patient.
Can I use the device outside of my scheduled sessions?
To maximize patient care, clinicians are also assigning therapeutic exercises for patients to complete with
the guidance of the device’s AI on days without telehealth visits.
