Telerehabilitation, a branch of telemedicine, has evolved beyond simple voice calls and videoconferencing.

Notable developments include the use of virtual environments and haptic machines to create interactive, at-home rehabilitation environments, and the “gamification” of these technologies to make the treatment more engaging and fun for the patient.
