Special Theme Issue / e-Collection 2020: The Influence of the COVID-19 Pandemic on Rehabilitation” in JMIR Rehabilitation and Assistive Technologies

Since early in the COVID-19 pandemic, the practice of rehabilitation has had to adapt as in-person therapy has been cancelled or modified, staff have been redeployed and survivors of COVID-19 need rehabilitation to continue their recovery. Sharing research on these new interventions will enhance the ability of all who work in the area of rehabilitation to provide the most appropriate care. JMIR Rehabilitation and Assistive Technologies is welcoming manuscripts on new and innovative research. Priority will be given to original research as well as review papers. Editorials and perspectives will be considered only after pre-approval for submission from the editor. Authors are welcome at any time before submission to receive feedback and input on their paper ideas from the editor or editorial board.
