Thinking inside the box

Location: Vienna, Austria

Physiotherapist Roman Pallesits has found a lockdown workaround

He is treating his clients while they are inside a box

made from plexiglass attached to a wooden frame

as an inventive way to protect himself

while keeping his business afloat

The athletes stretch inside the contained unit

as he gives instructions from the other side

(SOUNDBITE) (German) PHYSIOTHERAPIST, ROMAN PALLESITS, SAYING:

".... at the moment there are no protective measures in place for physiotherapists. There are no masks, no protective clothing, no gloves but I think that people still need physio and not just the acute patients but also for people that are in stages of rehab. So my idea was to get protective barriers in place and that's why we put up these plexiglass windows."
