Methods: People living in the community with stroke born between 1946 and 1964 (i.e., baby-boomer generation) who participated in a larger telerehabilitation survey were included in this study. Regression modeling was used to evaluate personal, health/disability and technological predictors of interest to use mobile-devices for telerehabilitation.
Results and significance: Fifty people with stroke, mean age 62.7 (4.4) years, 58% male, 54.2% with moderate or moderately severe disability were included; 86% had access to a mobile phone or tablet. Regression analysis resulted in statistically significant personal (education, β = 0.29 [95% CI = 0.05 to 1.11], population of residence, β = 0.30 [95% CI = 0.07 to 0.69]), health (comorbid conditions, β = 0.30 [95% CI = 0.02 to 0.20]) technology (ownership, β = 0.26 [95% CI = 0.01 to 0.86] and attitude towards telerehabilitation, β = 0.25 [95% CI = 0.01 to 0.79]) predictors of interest to use mobile-devices for telerehabilitation (R2 = 33.1%).
