Doody's Core Titles® 2022 Essential Purchase

"Although the number of books about telehealth are expanding, there is little written about telerehabilitation as a concept or as a field, so this book is unique. It also stands out for presenting a sizeable number of seemingly disparate conditions, but all unified by their focus on telerehabilitation." ©Doody's Review Service, 2022, Elliot J Roth, MD (Shirley Ryan AbilityLab)
