Detailed Description:
During the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic many Neurophysiotherapist opted for telerehabilitation to provide rehabilitation to the patients. This study aims to find out challenges faced by Neurophysiotherapist (NeuroPT) for consultation through telerehabilitation within Maharashtra provenance. A total of 103 NeuroPT within Maharashtra provenance were contacted through this online survey. A brief, structured and validated questionnaire was constructed as there is no gold standard questionnaire developed to obtain responses from the neuro physiotherapists opting for telerehabilitation mode for their consultations with their clients. The questionnaire was sent by What's app and email to gather basic information to describe the various challenges in consultation through telerehabilitation.
