How we use health apps for rehabilitation

The Mytherappy team use Stroke apps and Brain Injury apps across all of our clinical areas, this includes the Acute Stroke Unit, Stroke rehabilitation unit, Early supported discharge for Stroke and Brain injury, Outpatients and Community rehabilitation. Health apps are a tool to be used in conjunction with therapy or treatment and not a replacement. They are always used towards functional goals and transferred into function.

“very successful, patients enjoy. Easy to use … helps patients engage. Can see improvements.” Kirsty Support Worker

All our apps are suitable for Stroke and Brain injury patients.Apps are used with our Stroke and Brain Injury patients as:
  • a Treatment tool with the therapist during therapy sessions in hospital and in their own homes
  • part of patients independent home exercise programme
  • an information resource for patients and families during their acute care

Our team have access to a variety of tablets some of which we loan to patients. Most of these have been sourced through charitable funds. We also encourage patients to download the health apps to there own devices.
