Upper Extremity

VIATherapy - Upper Extremity

Researchers and clinicians at the UHN Toronto Rehabilitation Institute have developed a mobile app called "VIATherapy" to support rehabilitation professionals in deciding which upper extremity recovery interventions to choose for their clients. The app aids in clinical decision making for choosing upper extremity rehab interventions following stroke and is based on an algorithm that has been developed over the course of 5 years by an international, multidisciplinary panel of rehabilitation researchers and clinicians. The app is supported by Apple and Android. You can also view the app in your internet browser. The app is currently free, but will likely have a cost associated with use in the future.
