BACKGROUND: Total hip replacement (THR) is the gold standard treatment for severe hip osteoarthritis. Effectiveness of physical rehabilitation for THR patients following discharge from hospital is supported by evidence; however, barriers such as geographical location and transport can limit access to appropriate health care. One solution to this issue is using an alternative model of care using telerehabilitation technology to deliver rehabilitation programs directly into patients' homes...

An advantage of rehabilitation administered on computers or tablets is that the tasks can be self-administered and the cueing required to complete the tasks can be monitored. Though there are many types of cueing, few studies have examined how participants' response to rehabilitation is influenced by self-administered cueing, which is cueing that is always available but the individual decides when and which cue to administer. In this study, participants received a tablet-based rehabilitation where the tasks were selfpaced and remotely monitored by a clinician...

Falls are common and dangerous for survivors of stroke at all stages of recovery. The widespread need to assess fall risk in real time for individuals after stroke has generated emerging requests for a reliable, inexpensive, quantifiable, and remote clinical measure/tool. In order to meet these requests, we explore the Functional Reach Test (FRT) for real-time fall risk assessment and implement the FRT function in mStroke, a real-time and automatic mobile health system for poststroke recovery and rehabilitation...

The purpose of these three case studies was to analyse and theoretically explain the contribution of digital multimedia personalisation to stimulate and share long-term memories of people who live with mild to moderate dementia. We investigated how the use of a freely available iPad app can, in a supporting context, facilitate the creation of personalised multimedia stories, including the participants' audio recordings, texts and photos of items, places or people important to them. Three people who were recruited from a club for people living with dementia created personalised multimedia stories using their own photographs and/or pictures downloaded from the internet, with written captions and audio-recorded voiceovers...

PurposeLow-vision clients frequently report having problems with reading. Using magnification, reading performance (as measured by reading speed) can be improved by up to 200%. Current magnification aids can be expensive or bulky; therefore, we explored if the Apple iPad offers comparable performance in improving reading speeds, in comparison with a closed-circuit television (CCTV) video magnifier, or other magnification devices.MethodsWe recruited 100 participants between the ages of 24-97 years, with low vision who were literate and cognitively capable, of whom 57 had age-related macular degeneration...

69 Background: Patient-reported outcomes (PROs) contribute to the assessment and treatment of cancer-related fatigue (CRF). Paper-based symptom assessments are cumbersome and time-consuming. Electronic assessments are an efficient alternative. This study describes CRF Clinic patients at a major cancer Institution, the time they required to complete self-reported CRF symptom assessments via a tablet computer (iPad), and the factors influencing PRO assessment completion time. METHODS: From 1/1/2011 to 8/21/2012, 190 newly-referred CRF Clinic patients utilized an iPad to complete standardized CRF symptom assessments for: fatigue, pain, depression, anxiety, stress, sleepiness, and apathy...

INTRODUCTION: The authors propose that tablet computers could benefit patients with acute stroke in the remote care setting, where time to and accuracy of CT interpretation greatly influences patient outcome. METHODS: One hundred and fifty consecutive patients who presented to the Emergency Department of a tertiary referral neurosciences centre within a time window suitable for intravenous thrombolytic therapy were included. Images were wirelessly transmitted to a tablet computer (iPad 3rd Generation, model = A1430, Apple, Cupertino, CA) and were reviewed by radiologists with three levels of experience for signs of intracranial haemorrhage, large vessel occlusion and parenchymal infarction...

97 Background: We sought to implement patient reported outcomes (PRO) surveys to measure the acute and late effects of radiation treatment at a multisite academic medical center. METHODS: Over the course of 18 months we addressed survey identification and implementation hurdles. Many existing validated instruments were designed for clinical research and are not ideally suited for either routine care or for the tracking of acute toxicities of radiation therapy. A physician and a nurse champion for each disease site identified or created situation- and site-specific tools based on validated questionnaires form the literature...
