Home-based telerehabilitation improves cortical connectivity and motor function after a stroke

Takeaway

  • Home-based telerehabilitation training following a stroke improves motor function which is accompanied by greater interhemispheric functional connectivity of the primary cortex.

Why this matters

    These important findings suggest that home-based telerehabilitation may be better at improving motor function after a stroke than conventional training. The home-based telerehabilitation program allows individuals with stroke and movement disorders to receive professional rehabilitation training at home.
