Virtual rehabilitation therapies have been developed to focus on improving care for those suffering from various musculoskeletal disorders. There has been evidence suggesting that real-time virtual rehabilitation may be equivalent to conventional methods for adherence, improvement of function, and relief of pain seen in these conditions. This study specifically evaluated the use of a virtual physical therapy/rehabilitation platform for use during the postoperative period after total hip arthroplasty (THA) and total knee arthroplasty (TKA). The use of this technology has the potential benefits that allow for patient adherence, cost reductions, and coordination of care.
