Telehealth Services

TeleHealth at A Body In Motion

What is TeleRehab?

Using secure telehealth technology, you can participate in a virtual physiotherapy initial assessment or follow up visit with one of our experienced clinicians. We have created a convenient system which will allow you to stay on track with your recovery from the comfort of your own home. Virtual rehab allows you to video conference from your laptop, tablet or phone and meet with our physiotherapists just like you would in our clinic. We have the expertise, the knowledge and the skill set to deliver the same support and care that you have come to expect from the ABIM team! We have created a platform that maintains your security and privacy and meets all guidelines required by HIPPA and PHIPA.

Preparing for Your Upcoming Telehealth Appointment

– Our platform works best with either Google Chrome or Safari Web Browsers so please ensure that you have one of these installed on the device that you will be using. Although phones are convenient, the video is often small and sometimes difficult to view, so although they will work, it may be more beneficial to use a laptop or a tablet.

– Our platform uses Zoom for Healthcare and you will receive an email confirming your appointment as well as a detail on how to log into your appointment.

– Please arrive to your appointment a few minutes early.

– Ensure that you have a space that is clear with room to move around.

– Ensure that your space is well-lit.

– You may be asked to move your camera angle throughout your session so that your therapist can observe different angles, movements or body parts.

– Ensure that you are in a quiet, distraction free environment.

– Please test your webcam and microphone beforehand.

– Following your appointment your therapist will summarize the goals and treatment plan you agree on, assist you with booking your follow-up sessions, and send you your homework
