Due to the expense of health care and the need to contain costs, many stroke patients are discharged from hospitals while still in an impaired condition. Using Tele-rehabilitation, these patients can receive rehabilitation services remotely. A pegboard is a conventional rehabilitation therapeutic device that integrates cognition, sensation and hand motor function. This study proposes a Tele-rehabilitation content with automated pegboard and shows its functional feasibility. The evaluation of the pegboard session was automated with RFID (radio frequency identification), and a 16-hole pegboard was rapid-prototyped. After a pegboard session is completed, the session result is uploaded to a server automatically for viewing on a web browser by a remote therapist. The therapist can also send messages to remote patients to encourage them or to manage the rehabilitation process.
