COVID-19 has completely changed our perspective and lifestyle. It led a digitalized revolution in industries and also impacted the healthcare industry. Telemedicine can be seen as a digitalized form of healthcare delivery. However, telemedicine is not a new term in the health industry but it gained momentum during COVID-19 and is growing till now. Since health is the top-most priority for all the individual and due to shortage of medical facilities and staffs, telerehabilitation has been emerged as a bridge to fill the gap between healthcare needs and its’ delivery. The first recorded use of telemedicine was in 1957 for a tele-mental health project in Nebraska (Cooper'01). In 1998, National Institute on Disability Rehabilitation and Research (NIDRR) funded the US’s first Radio Education and Research Centre (RERC) on Telerehabilitation (TR) to initiate research on TR as a complement to telemedicine [1].
