Nowadays, Information and Communications Technology (ICT) makes rapid progress in our community life and healthcare support system. Our objective was to explore the effect of tele-rehabilitation on memory impairment after traumatic brain injury. Studies about tele-rehabilitation on memory in adults with traumatic brain injury were reviewed. Four database searches were conducted: MEDLINE, Cochrane Library, CINAHL, and PsycINFO. Of the 523 studies identified in the search, 8 studies (including 2 RCTs) met the inclusion criteria, which involved 207 participants. There were 12 kinds of remote intervention: television assisted controlled prompting, Google Calendar, spaced retrieval training as errorless learning, and so on. A common evaluation index; Community Integration Questionnaire (CIQ) was conducted in two studies. Results from several studies indicated that remote interventions on memory impairment improve the proportion of prospective intentions completed in the patients’ daily life. Further research and meta-analysis are needed based on RCTs.
