Online access to NeuroMoves

SCIA offers online access to services Australia-wide

Spinal Cord Injuries Australia offers a wide range of services across Australia for people with spinal cord injury and other neurological conditions.

Unfortunately, due to the vastness of Australia, not all people have physical access to these services, such as our exercise therapy service NeuroMoves, or our Peer & Family Support program.

Barriers which prevent them from reaching our NeuroMoves sites, or permitting our Peer & Family Support coordinators from visiting would include, but are not limited to:

  • Physical impairment preventing or restricting attendance
  • Geographical isolation and large physical distances
  • Lack of SCIA staff in a geographic area who can help
  • Lack of transportation
  • With the aim to help people with a spinal cord injury or other neurological condition gain better access to NeuroMoves and our Peer & Family Support Coordinators, we now offer a Telehealth Service.

    Through Telehealth, we will be connecting clients to NeuroMoves therapists and Peer & Family Support coordinators over video a conference software called GPNow. We hope that the introduction of Telehealth will not only reduce the barriers that exist for some people to access these vital services, but to also further enhance their rehabilitation.

    The Telehealth service is currently in its pilot program stages, during which we are consistently reflecting and remoulding the platform to better service our client’s needs.

    Over this pilot period, we are pleased to partner with GPNow for our video conferencing software.
