We are offering a free half hour session at our clinic to learn more about TeleRehabilitation and try the MindMotion™ GO* device.
Talk to one of our experts via the live chat function to understand more about TeleRehab and how to book an appointment for your free session.
What is TeleRehabilitation?
The TeleRehabilitation programme enables our clients to access therapy from the comfort of their own home whilst being continuously supported remotely by our neurological physiotherapists or physiotherapy assistants via a video call.
The programme uses engaging video game activities that have been developed by neuroscientists and designed to promote specific therapeutic movement; helping our clients improve motor function and maximise their recovery potential following a stroke.
What is MindMotion™ GO and how does it work?
Leveraging state-of -the-art neuroscience, the MindMotion™ GO is a medical software device that can easily plug into a home TV. The device is able to follow body movement using motion tracking cameras, so handsets are not required when engaging in post stroke exercise activities. On-screen, the wide range of therapeutic games provide motivating environments that encourage movement, strengthen muscles and help improve balance and co-ordination.
What technical equipment is required at home?
Wifi and a TV are required to connect to the MindMotion™ GO. The device is simple and intuitive to set-up; however, our team are on hand to help with any technical issues if they arise. Access to an i-pad or laptop will be needed for the physio led therapy sessions via video call.
How are clients supported during TeleRehabilitation Sessions?
TeleRehabilitation is fully supported by PhysioFunction neurological physiotherapists. Depending on client needs and goals, therapy programmes will include a combination of remote therapy with direct support from one of our neurological physiotherapists or physiotherapy assistants as well as exercise activities for you to undertake independently.
What are the benefits of TeleRehab in the context of the Covid-19 pandemic
TeleRehab is highly beneficial for individuals who are currently unable to access physiotherapy due to isolation requirements. It allows people to stay at home, avoiding at risk situations in clinics. This is not only safer, but also ends up being more convenient.
TeleRehabilitation programs also allow individuals to keep on track in their therapy. Being in isolation may reduce the amount of activity most of us complete each day, which can lead to a lack of motivation, reduced exercise tolerance and increased stiffness. Keeping moving is essential to maintain health, prevent muscle tightness, and de-conditioning. Having the support of a physiotherapist will help keep you accountable and motivated to continue your rehabilitation whilst you are confined to your home.
