Upgrading Your Equipment

How to Make the Most of Trial Periods and Equipment Demonstrations

29 May 2024

Investing in new equipment for your physiotherapy clinic is a big decision. A hands-on trial period or equipment demonstration can be invaluable in ensuring you're making the right choice. If a trial is offered, don't hesitate to take it—but here's how to get the most out of it, maximize the benefits, and make an informed decision about your investment.

Pre-Advertise to Your Existing Patients

One of the best ways to gauge the potential value of new equipment is to involve your existing patients. If you're offered a trial period, pre-advertise it to your patients, letting them know they can try the new equipment at no additional cost. This approach serves several purposes:

  • Test Demand: You'll get a sense of how interested your patients are in the new equipment, helping you determine if it's worth investing in.
  • Collect Feedback: Patients' reactions and comments during the trial can offer valuable insights into the equipment's effectiveness and user-friendliness.
  • Build Excitement: By inviting patients to be part of the trial, you create buzz around the new equipment, which can lead to increased interest and future appointments.

Invite All Staff to Be Present During the Demonstration

A successful trial period involves not only your patients but also your entire staff. Having all team members present during the equipment demonstration ensures that everyone is on the same page and can offer input on its usability and benefits. Here are some reasons to involve your staff:

  • Collaborative Feedback: Your staff will have different perspectives on the equipment, leading to more comprehensive feedback.
  • Staff Training: A demonstration is an excellent opportunity for staff training. By participating, your team can learn how to operate the equipment, ensuring a smooth transition if you decide to purchase it.
  • Unified Decision-Making: When all staff are involved, you're more likely to reach a consensus on whether the equipment is a good fit for your clinic.

Conduct a Mid-Trial Check-In

To make the most of your trial period, schedule a check-in halfway through to discuss patient outcomes and any questions or concerns that have arisen. This check-in serves several purposes:

  • Assess Patient Outcomes: Review the impact of the new equipment on patient outcomes. Are they experiencing benefits? Are there any issues or complaints?
  • Address Questions and Concerns: This is a chance to address any operational challenges or questions about the equipment. It's also an opportunity to seek clarification from the equipment provider if needed.
  • Adjust Your Approach: Based on the feedback, you can adjust how you use the equipment for the remainder of the trial to better evaluate its effectiveness.

Conclusion: Making an Informed Decision

Trial periods and equipment demonstrations offer a unique opportunity to test new equipment before making a significant investment. To get the most out of these trials, involve your existing patients to gauge interest and collect feedback, ensure all staff are present during the demonstration, and conduct a mid-trial check-in to assess progress and address questions.
