Abstract

Purpose of Review: Mobile health (mHealth) interventions may be useful for individuals with traumatic brain injury (TBI), but there is minimal knowledge regarding how mHealth technology is currently being used for TBI treatment or rehabilitation. The purpose of this review is to examine the extant literature on the use of mHealth for intervention delivery in order to identify considerations for using mHealth with the TBI population, and to provide recommendations for further study. Recent Findings: Consistent with recent literature in other disability populations, mHealth shows promise for people with TBI as a compensatory strategy for cognitive impairment, a method for monitoring and reducing symptoms, and a means of addressing goals in social and educational spheres. Summary: In this review article, we summarize the results of 16 articles on mHealth interventions for individuals with TBI, highlighting relevant findings for clinical application and discussing challenges unique to the use of mHealh post-TBI.
