Abstract

Since the beginning of 2020, COVID-19 infections have increased exponentially, overwhelming health-care services globally. Survivors of this infection have significant disabilities due to the debilitating weakness and compromised lung function. Unfortunately, rehabilitation services are scarce due to diversion of rehabilitation clinicians to emergency medical care. This manual aims to bridge this gap by providing a self-directed home care and graduated exercise program which does not require any special equipment. The exercises were carefully selected based on research by the authors on self-directed home exercises in frail, elderly patients.
