Internet-based physical assessment of people with Parkinson disease is accurate and reliable: A pilot study

Trevor G. Russell, PhD, et al.

This study aimed to determine the accuracy and reliability of performing physical assessments of people with Parkinson disease (PD) via the Internet. People with PD who live in areas where traditional rehabilitation services are not readily accessible could benefit from this technology through increased access to healthcare. Balance and mobility outcome measures were investigated in 12 subjects via the Internet using the eHAB telerehabilitation system. Results showed that telerehabilitation assessments are accurate and reliable. This study indicates that it is possible to assess the physical ability of people with PD via telerehabilitation systems and provides support for further development of telerehabilitation applications.
