What to expect from a video consultation and home exercise programme (HEP) with your Therpaist at Physit | Physit08 Apr 2020

The great benefit of video sessions during isolation ensures patients can keep up with their rehabilitation and training whilst remaining safe and distanced in their own home. These video sessions help to keep patients on their road to full recovery by carrying on with their current rehab and progression of individualised home exercise programs (HEP), whilst being overseen by their therapist. Patients can also use these sessions to voice any new aches, pains or queries regarding their rehab, HEP, etc..  Patient exercises will be uploaded real-time during the video session to a free downloadable app called PhysiApp. Patients will find step by step instructions, together with video demonstrations, explaining how to perform these exercises. They will also be able to give feedback within the app on each exercises for their therapist to review and feedback to you.

What happens during a video consultation/session?

Patients will need to clear a space big enough to do their current rehab exercises or be talked through, shown new exercises and progressions. The devices used for the session (phone, laptop, tablet) will need to be setup up so that the patients are in full view. (We will help how to place the device so that we, the therapists, get the right angle)

What equipment is needed?

Typical equipment a patient may need:

  • a yoga/exercise mat, if they have wooden/slippery floor
  • theraband/mini band (these will have been supplied by the physio already or we can arrange these to be dropped off at their home beforehand))
  • a chair
  • cans of beans, tomatoes or hand weights if you have them (lots of home “equipment” can be used to add a bit a resistance or load to progress exercises)

With all these things in place, we can then articulate or demonstrate a movement or exercise that we would like the patent to perform and create the best individualised session!

Being isolated in one’s home can be very stressful, due to not wanting to go outside to exercise or not being able to meet up with family, friends for risk of infection. We all know that exercise itself can give you an endorphin (feel good hormones) boost, so we aim to make these sessions fun and energised so patients end their appointment on a high and ready to take on the day!
