Necessary tools for tele-rehab
Depending on the affected area, here's a list of the useful tools to have.
Make sure necessary material is ready before you start a session.
A smartphone with an active camera or a laptop placed in front of the work plan where the evaluation will be done is sufficient. Make sure in advance of the quality of your connection:
1. Visit https://duo.google.com/
2. Log in with a Google account displaying your name
3. Click "Start a Call" and enter the following information: 514-265-6547 or firstname.lastname@example.org
4. Click on the contact then on video call, an authorization will be requested to use your webcam/sound.
The Google Duo app is suggested here for better data encryption, but if it's impossible for you to use it, please notify me in advance.
A table edge, different sizes of elastic and pencils in addition to a stress / grip ball are required. If you don't have the latter, a simple tight rolled towel will do. Having athletic/sport tape and a light exercise band is a big plus.
The camera should show a view of you standing with your feet on the ground AND if necessary a seated view. Shorts are essential.
Everything else is optional: A small bench or stairs, an exercise band, a Swiss ball, a ball and a foam roller.. Kinesiology tape (K-Tape) often allows immediate effects but don't buy it just yet if you don't already have some.
The camera should show a view of you standing allowing to see your head, shoulder and half of your torso. Tank top is suggested
You will need a stick (broom handle without the brush), a mirror, an exercise band and some light weights (even a bottle of water or a grocery bag with canned food is enough). A pull up bar is strongly suggested.
Optionally: A massage ball, foam roller and kinesiology tape (K-Tape). No need to buy if you don't already have some.
