Formatted abstract
The Telerehabilitation Special Interest Group of the American Telemedicine Association is comprised of practitioners in health and education and technology specialists who are engaged in applying telecommunications and health information technologies to improve access to rehabilitation and educational services and to support independent living. This document was collaboratively developed by members of the Telerehabilitation SIG, with input and guidance from other practitioners in the field, strategic stakeholders, and ATA staff.

The purpose of this guide is to inform and assist practitioners in providing effective and safe services that are based on client needs, current empirical evidence, and available technologies. The material in this guide addresses general principles and not specific practice guidelines for telerehabilitation and is not intended to replace the primary practitioner's clinical, educational, or technology decision making about the appropriate course of action/management of any client. Inherent within this document is the recognition that safe and effective telerehabilitation practice requires specific training, skills, and techniques as documented later. Further, the material in this guide should not be interpreted, or used, as a legal standard of care.
