TRAIL: TeleRehabilitation with Aims to Improve Lower Extremity Recovery Post-Stroke

We are inviting stroke survivors with lower leg hemiparesis to participate in a study on telerehabilitation, the delivery of rehabilitation using technology. In this study, we are evaluating an exercise program to improve leg functioning that is delivered remotely using video-conferencing technology.

The main goal of this study is to determine if telerehabilitation is a feasible option to support stroke survivors as they transition from rehabilitation to living in the community. The results of our study will generate new knowledge that can improve clinical practice and lead to further research to better support stroke survivors through telerehabilitation.

We are currently recruiting participants from the following sites across Canada: Vancouver, Winnipeg, London, Toronto, and Halifax.

If you are interested in participating in this study and want to find out more about your eligibility, please send the study coordinator, Sarah Park, an email at trail.study@ubc.ca to further discuss the study!
