Here at Plym Physio we are working really hard to continue providing best patient care in these rather unique times of isolation. We have purchased software that allows us to safely interact with you (GDPR and medical insurer compliant). When you make an appointment with us we then send you an email to invite you to your ‘meeting’. You will receive this in advance and to save time on the day you can download the app in advance. We are using an application called ZOOM which is free to download. You can use smart phones, tablets or laptops for the consultation and just need some space to move around. If you’d prefer, Facetime, Facebook and Whatsapp video calls are also compatible with these appointments.
We’ve been using the software this week and everyone so far has been really positive about it. This reflects what the evidence shows that remote sessions are effective and have high patient satisfaction. Our ‘Plym Pilates’ classes have also transferred across onto ‘remote delivery’ and we’re now planning ahead for classes which would normally use specific equipment to ensure that we can emulate these exercises through the use of household objects! An appropriate use of the saying….’necessity is the mother of invention’!!
Here’s a video giving you all the information you need for a remote physiotherapy assessment or treatment.
