Telerehabilitation uses telecommunication and virtual reality technologies to deliver rehabilitation services remotely. It allows patients to receive physical, occupational, and speech therapy in their homes or other non-clinical settings. This is advantageous for patients who have mobility issues or live in remote areas with limited access to rehabilitation facilities. It also reduces travel costs and time for patients. Key players in the Europe market offer telerehabilitation solutions targeting conditions like stroke, traumatic brain injury, Parkinson’s disease etc.
Growing adoption of telehealth services across Europe is expected to boost the telerehabilitation market growth. Supportive government initiatives and reimbursement policies are encouraging wider acceptance of telemedicine. For instance, during the COVID-19 pandemic, the National Health Service (NHS) in the UK rapidly scaled up virtual consultations using online platforms or phone calls. This highlighted benefits of remote care delivery models. Additionally, the proportion of elderly people is rising rapidly across Europe. As per the European Commission, over 20% of EU population will be aged 65 or above by 2030. Older adults are more prone to disabilities requiring long-term rehabilitation. This rising geriatric population fuels demand for home-based and remote rehabilitation therapies.
Rising prevalence of chronic conditions like cerebral palsy, multiple sclerosis etc. also necessitates ongoing rehabilitation and therapy. Telerehabilitation enables continuity of care and management of such conditions from home.
