Telerehabilitation

Requirements for telerehabilitation

You will need access to a computer, tablet or smartphone with a functioning camera and microphone (our platform works on PCs and Apple computers as well as iOS and android devices). You will also need access to internet, and space in your home where you can complete exercises (this may include floor space, a bed, chair, or couch, a counter or wall for support).

 

Access to a yoga mat, resistance bands/tubing and weights may be helpful, but are not required.
