Do patients perform home-exercises correctly?!

Are patients able to accurately recall exercises they have been taught in clinic after a two-week break?

After 2 weeks only 7 of the 29 participants were accurately able to reproduce the correct TUT and technique after performing two weeks of unsupervised home exercise.
