You will only need an electronic device that has a camera and a screen on it. Such as a smartphone, tablet or laptop/PC with a camera.
It is best to think through your surroundings and setup before the consultation begins. Use a space at home where you can have a private conversation with your physio. Put the camera in a stable suitable position so that the physiotherapist can easily see you. It’s best with quiet surroundings, and if possible use headphones for better sound quality. But this is not essential.
Wear comfortable loose fitting clothes which is allow the physiotherapist to see the affected part of the body. You will also need to be sat comfortably for the first part of the session which will be mainly talking about your problem.
If you use a specific mobility aid such as a zimmer frame or walking stick, please have this close. If any other pieces of equipment are required, we will discuss this during the assessment. Usually common household objects can be used, such as a tin of beans for hand weights.
