How does this equipment work at home?
It is very easy to use this software at home.
- You need a Smart TV, which the software is loaded onto
- Ideally a 3-4 metre space in front of the TV gives enough space to perform your exercises.
- Depending on our therapist’s recommendations you may benefit from using some small pieces of equipment may be recommended to maximise the benefits of the exercises e.g. TheraBand/ foam balance pads / hand weights. Your physiotherapist will advise you on this.
How will I be supported in using the MindMotion GO ?
- Following an assessment with our clinic device and home environment suitability ascertained, the MindMotion Go Therapy package can be set up.
- The rental package includes an assessment visit to set the device up and set the activities programme. This is followed by 1 x 60 mins home visit and 1 x 30 mins remote session in the first month. Included in the package, you have one further home visit and one further remote consultation within the package. These will be arranged one in month two and one in month three to best suit your needs.

What do the remote and home session include?
- Home sessions are a visit with our physiotherapist to monitor and observe you working with the activities programme. This allows them to give hands on feedback and modifications to your technique when performing activities. They can also check the software and make alterations to your activities programme.
- Remote sessions involve a Skype or face time call from our therapist. They will discuss with you how you are managing with the programme and use this information along with the software data to gain a better understanding of how you are managing your programme and the benefits you are getting. Appropriate modifications can then be made to your activities programme.
