Intense rehabilitation after stroke and other forms of acquired brain injury (ABI) can lead to large clinical improvements. Despite this, most stroke patients do not receive enough neurorehabilitation. The arrival of Covid-19 in early 2020 further reduced opportunities to receive rehabilitation, but it did lead to a spike in interest, innovation and delivery in various forms of telerehabilitation. I will describe two telerehabilitation programmes that were designed and delivered in response to Covid-19. Firstly, Neurorehabilitation OnLine (N-ROL), which involved input from physiotherapy, occupational therapy, speech and language therapy, neuropsychology and neurology, delivered exclusively online and to groups of between 3 and 15 stroke patients. Secondly, Queen Square Upper Limb Online Neurorehabilitation programme, a 4 -week programme of physiotherapy and occupational therapy delivered mostly online either one-to-one or in groups. I will present the results from each programme and discuss (i) the possible active ingredients, (ii) what we can learn from their implementation and (iii) whether there is a role for this form of telerehabilitation in future.
