The 3rd Telemedicine Congress entitled “Day-to-day provision and/or low sustainability” took place in Bad Kissingen. In the middle of discussions there was the draft bill of the new “E-Health act”. The federal government proposed their interest in establishing a secure communication, as well as, open dialogue to support several telemedicine solutions for the medical service providers. It is believed that undersupplied areas should benefit from the cross-sectorial collaboration of the physicians via telemedicine.
For the first time MEYTEC presented a new telemedicine solution for the rehabilitation of the upper limb in the home environment, VIMED® TELEREHAB. This enables affected patients to perform selected therapeutic exercises under control of the remote located therapist via telemedicine, without the need to leave their own home. VIMED® TELEREHAB implements a pool of evidence-based therapeutic exercises based around “Activities of Daily Living” (ADLs).
