In-Person BLS Tools

The Bilateral Base BLS tools can be used just as effectively in your therapy room as online.

This feature is currently in Beta so it will continue evolving as we add more capabilities to it

Method 1 – Single Device (1 Screen) #

This is the simplest way of

Select ‘In-Person Session’ on the Practice Manager screen

Location of in-person session button

If you intend to use auditory BLS with your client then connect headphones and check that these are working

Select Full Screen mode in the bottom right of your screen

Location of full screen button in session interface

Set up the BLS tools as needed for your client

You are now ready to use the in-person BLS tools with your client

You can start/stop BLS with your mouse (or other pointing device)

You can also start/stop BLS using the spacebar on your keyboard

You can alter the speed using your mouse or the UP/DOWN arrows on your keyboard

(Tip – using an external keyboard means you can control the BLS from a distance)

 

Method 2 – Single Device (2 Screens) #

If you have an additional screen for your computer/device, you can set up your therapy room so that you can control the BLS from a distance

First up your second screen so it mirrors the content on your first screen

Instructions for Mac

  1. Make sure that your external display is turned on and connected to your Mac.
  2. Choose Apple menu  > System Preferences, click Displays, then click the Arrangement tab.
  3. Make sure that the Mirror Displays checkbox is selected.

Instructions for Windows

 

Select ‘In-Person Session’ on the Practice Manager screen

Location of in-person session button

If you intend to use auditory BLS with your client then connect headphones and check that these are working

Location of auditory BLS option

Select Full Screen mode in the bottom right of your screen

Location of full screen button in session interface

You are now ready to use the in-person BLS tools with your client with them looking at your second screen

You can also start/stop BLS using the spacebar on your keyboard

(Watch a demo of this setup below)

Please note that as this feature is still in beta, the BLS controls will appear on your clients screen as well as yours. We will soon make it so that your client only sees the light bar and not the BLS controls.

Method 3 – Display Device + Control Device #

You can also choose to use a second device to remotely control the display device. This allows you to conveniently control the device from your chair without having to lean over you client to control the BLS

Select ‘In-Person Session’ on the Practice Manager screen

Location of in-person session button

 

Choose whether you want the device you are using to be the display device or the control device.

Then log into your account with your second device and select it as your display or control device (whichever option you didn’t select before).

Once you have done this you will be able to control the display device, making things comfortable and easy for you and really professional for your clients
