Abstract

This is a protocol for a Cochrane Review (Intervention). The objectives are as follows:

To investigate the effectiveness and safety of telerehabilitation intervention in pwMS for improved patient outcomes.

Specifically, we will aim to address the following questions:

  • Does telerehabilitation achieve better outcomes compared with traditional face-to-face intervention?

  • What types of telerehabilitation interventions are effective, in which setting and influence which specific outcomes (impairment, activity limitation and participation)?
