“In terms of the equipment demonstration via video call it was informative, your explanations and demonstrations were clear and concise and your ability to anticipate and answer my questions was incredibly helpful. Being able to do this in real-time via a video call was effective and great in terms of time management. It was an experience that I would like to replicate again in the future to save time as a therapist exploring and investigating suitable equipment for clients. Thanks again for your help and support with this.”
Very much appreciated your time and advice spent assisting us. I think the Zoom consultation was very successful and an amazing way to see the products in operation. Thank you also for your patience while both the boy’s Dad and I mastered Zoom at our end!”
An Occupational Therapists perspective on video assessments
“As an Occupational Therapist, I embrace change. Its prescription often enables an individual to maintain or increase their level of independence. The world in which we find ourselves living at the current time requires each one of us to change our day-to-day lives. So, by embracing this change, coupled with technology, we can promote optimum health and wellbeing in new and innovative ways.”
“Theraposture are using technology to complete video-based OT assessments via many different web platforms – this new way of working is quickly transforming our practice. We complete these in a timely manner as they can involve health professionals, carers, clients, and family members. The video assessment enables products to be viewed and demonstrated in a relaxed private environment, with full explanation given on specific features and functions prevalent to different pathologies. In my professional opinion, video assessments are very effective, and I strongly believe they will become normal practice within our continued new way of working.”

What are the main advantages?
There are many benefits to choosing a video assessment and product demonstration. You have the convenience of not receiving a home visit and more people can be involved in the meeting without having to travel. You can discuss your needs with a highly experienced equipment specialist / OT and see products working from the comfort of your own home, in the specific context of your own needs. Appointments are available throughout the working week and booking is easy and simple.
Overall video calls can speed up the process of finding a solution and benefiting from it.
What is involved with a video call?
Before the appointment, one of our advisors will telephone you to discuss your needs and to advise how we set up the video call. The appointment is confirmed and then you are sent a link via email to simply click on the agreed time and date. Theraposture sets up the call so all you need to do is join.
When the time comes for your video call, all you need to do is click the link and you will be connected to our video conferencing room where a Trusted Assessor or OT will be ready to assess your needs and to demonstrate equipment – this is a conversation that is personalised to you and your situation. Several other participants can be included in the call which may include your OT, carer, friend or family member. They will also be sent the meeting link before the call.
Once the session is completed, which typically lasts one hour, the advisor will summarise the key points and arrange for an estimate to be sent out with final recommendations. They will then end the video session.
How are Theraposture video calls safe and secure?
We only use the latest versions of video apps, so they are secure from hackers. We offer a variety of software options included Starleaf which is preferred by Newlife, the disabled children’s charity. The latest version of Zoom is currently a popular choice as its security settings have been enhanced.
Can I receive a home visit instead?
Yes, you can. Following the guidance of Public Health England and upon a customer request, our Trusted Assessors can provide home visits whilst maintaining social distancing and wearing PPE. We have a robust code of conduct to protect against Covid-19 which is a protocol already in successful operation during product installations. Video product demonstrations with an equipment specialist can also be included during home visits if you prefer.
