Equipments

First of all, if you do not have a physical office but do not want to use your home address, you can use the option called Ipostal.  In this service, you can redirect your mail to be sent to your home, or you can drive there to pick it up yourself. We have been using it for a couple of years without a problem.*Some states and insurances requires a physical location.

Equipment recommendations for therapists who are setting up their Telehealth practice on their own and for those who need an update. In addition, we added some other accessories you might need to consider such as camera cover for privacy.*

STRENGTH INTERNET CONNECTION

Due to many circumstances, many providers became caught with the lack of a good connection to use during the telehealth sessions. In some areas, a better connection is not even possible as the internet providers do not offer any other options. Below is an example of how you can strengthen your internet signal. In addition, it is recommended:

  1. Close all the internet tabs while working with the client, have one note program open if you prefer to not use paper;

  2. Make sure other people are not using the internet to stream services (Netflix, games, etc.), and recommend the client to do the same. 

  3. Close all the programs on your computer  (Word, Excel, etc), even if they do not use the internet connection, they will use your computer's speed.

Option 1

Option 2

Option 3 - If you don't want to spend much, here is an example of a good one that I personally use to help with my connection before and helped. You can also connect to a cable directly to your computer.

SCREEN PROTECTION

Buying a new pair of eyeglasses is not even possible and some of them are just not comfortable. I would also add an extension to your internet called Blue Light Filter Guard on your chrome web store, or even adding to your Windows program, or Firefox browser.

LIGHT

It is critical that the lighting in your online conference enables the camera to view the participants well. Proper lighting minimizes shadows that might distort a person's face emotions or look. Below are some options that you can easily bring with you and/or do not have much space in your desk.

OPTION I
Lightbar helps to smooth the shades caused by the different changes in the brightness, such as daylight or room ceiling lights. You can place it on the side of your computer.

OPTION II

This option is easy to place at your desk and the stick and it is extendable.

OPTION III

Otherwise, place it behind the computer.
