Get started with Kieser

GMHBA members with extras cover are eligible for Kieser telehealth and face-to-face physiotherapy with no out of pocket costs, up to your annual limits.

Kieser's telehealth, video-based version of physiotherapy is done in the comfort of your own home. Kieser's physiotherapists will provide you with a thorough assessment, treatment and exercise prescription through an online video appointment.

Whether you’re experiencing some form of pain, or even recovering from surgery, you can get the support and advice you need with Kieser.

Kieser Konnect app

All GMHBA members will have access to Kieser Konnect, which features video strength and conditioning programs compiled by Kieser’s physiotherapists, so anyone can follow elements of the program from home. Training at home with Kieser Konnect can help you maintain your strength, cardiovascular fitness and your immune system. 

Your program in the app can also be personalised with a program to suit your specific needs if you have a telehealth consultation with a Kieser physiotherapist.
