We offer exercise physiology online via video consultation
What is telehealth?
Telehealth is the new way to connect with your exercise physiologist or other health professional online. We offer video consultations so you can see and speak to us much like Skype or FaceTime.

Pick a day and time which suits you
No more commute to the clinic
No more waiting rooms

Telehealth is ideal for people who are:
Busy (working full-time, mothers)
House-bound (older people, can't drive)
Frequent travellers (Domestic and international travellers)
Carers (full-time carers)

Can I use my current referral for telehealth?

How does it work?
1. Make a booking – either online or by phone
2. You will receive an email within 24 hours
3. Before your appointment, log in and wait for the call
What to expect at your first telehealth consultation?
A telehealth consultation is quite similar to a clinic consultation.
Your exercise physiologist will ask you to introduce yourself as well as your primary issue/concern.
They will then ask you a number of questions about your medical history and current physical activity as part of the assessment. They may also ask you to perform certain movements as part of the physical assessment.
They will discuss your performance on those movements and suggest exercise and other tips you can implement following the consultation. You can watch them demonstrate each exercise and follow along. Your exercise physiologist will correct your technique or provide advice as required.
