Tele-rehabilitation has come to stay! A COVID-19 forced experience

Pia Delano and is a physiotherapist from Chile. She has been working for more than 5 years in pediatric oncology rehabilitation at Centro de Rehabilitacion oncologico Foundation Nuestros Hijos. Pia is also a member of SIOP Young Investigators and wanted to share with us her experience with tele-rehabilitation with her pediatric oncology patients. It was the first week of March 2020 and the first positive COVID-19 case had been found in Chile. The pandemic was late to arrive at this corner of the world, but it only took two weeks for it to paralyze the country. Mandatory quarantine began around March 15th, and we had to figure out a way to keep on providing rehabilitation for our pediatric cancer patients for the ‘month’ that we were going to be at home. Would it work? How could we do physiotherapy interventions via webcam? Did kids nowadays even know what a webcam was? Our first challenge was to choose the platform for this: skype was too old school and WhatsApp videos was too personal
