Theraposture has launched a new online booking system for therapist-led video assessments.
It follows a growing demand for its latest OT-led, personalised video assessments and product demonstrations after introducing a new web appointment calendar.
The firm explained how offering an alternative to home visits, video appointments provide a face-to-face opportunity for the Theraposture Occupational Therapist (OT), Shaun Masters, to assess individual needs, answer questions and see a client’s environment.
Home assessment visits are still available if requested and appropriate, however for clients who are shielding or who do not want visitors, the option to choose a video call provides peace of mind.
A variety of video conferencing options including Zoom, Teams or WhatsAp can be used and once a booking has been made, Masters calls the client to discuss their product requirements and to ensure the technology is all set up before the appointment.
Bookings for Theraposture’s new service can be made by telephone or by its new online calendar booking app.
Shaun Masters, OT and Trusted Assessor, is leading the new Theraposture video services and believes working smart is the way forward to achieve faster positive outcomes.
He explained: “As an Occupational Therapist I embrace change. Its prescription often enables an individual to maintain or increase their level of independence.”
Adding: “The world in which we find ourselves living in 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.”
Theraposture video services are supported by its Covid-19 safe working practices which ensure product installations, service calls and home visits, of any kind, are safe for all involved.
Technicians have a strict protocol and wear full PPE whilst ensuring clients are shielded during any customer facing interaction. This duty of care is backed-up by a 14-day Suitability Guarantee which allows clients ample time to use their new equipment and ensure they are 100% satisfied.
