This study is designed as a randomized, three-month, single-center, two-arm, parallel controlled trial. A totalof 40 patients will be randomly classified as either the control or intervention group. Both groups receive usual care;however, the intervention group is also asked to perform the designed rehabilitation activities through the TextRehabprogram. The activity instructions are sent to patients step by step at least once a day. Self-reported outcomes will beassessed at 6 and 12 weeks after discharge and include self-reported Patient Rated Wrist Evaluation, self-reportedQuick-Disability of Arm, Shoulder, and Hand, and Visual Analogue Scale. Moreover, the reports of the physicianregarding the grip strength and Total Active Motion will be assessed at week 12.
The development of the message scheduling system and its contents is completed. This trial has the code ofethics in research (removed due to blinding issues). Study results are expected to be available in mid-2021.
