PhysioFunction are now able to offer clients stroke telerehabilitation - a combination of physio supported virtual therapy sessions with video game activities using a MindMotion™ GO.
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.
