The goal of this study was to identify predictors of telerehabilitation adherence in patients with multiple sclerosis (MS). An adherence prediction model was based on baseline patient characteristics. Such a model may be useful for identifying patients who require higher levels of engagements in the early stages of home telerehabilitation programs. The resulting set of predictive features included education, patient satisfaction with the program, and psychological domain of the MS Impact Scale. Resulting prediction of high and low adherence had overall 80.0% accuracy, 81.8% sensitivity, and 77.8% specificity. We concluded that the baseline patient information may be instrumental in personalizing levels of support and training necessary for active patient participation in telerehabilitation.
