Lessons Learned From Clinicians and Stroke Survivors About Using Telerehabilitation Combined With Exergames: Multiple Case Study

Abstract Background: In Canada, stroke survivors have difficulty accessing community-based rehabilitation services because of a lack of resources. VirTele, a personalized remote rehabilitation program combining virtual reality exergames and telerehabilitation, was developed to provide stroke survivors an opportunity to pursue rehabilitation of their chronic upper extremity (UE) deficits at home while receiving ongoing follow-up

Investigation of measurement invariance in longitudinal health-related quality of life in preemptive or previously dialyzed kidney transplant recipients

Summary Purpose Kidney transplantation (KT) can impact patients’ evaluation of health-related quality of life (HRQoL) as they adapt to their new life with a graft and its changes. Patients may adapt to KT in a different way, depending on whether they were on dialysis prior to transplantation or not (i.e. preemptive group). This may
