The IPF have embraced the support that technology can provide to better support injured rugby players

One such example is that of Peter who needed an in-home assessment for a piece of equipment. The supplier was able to demonstrate the equipment face-to-face, whilst the IPF joined in on Facetime, providing support for Peter to help them come to the best decision.


Peter said: "It was great having the IPF in the room with me whilst the equipment was being demonstrated, I really felt like I had someone on my side to help me make the right choice."


Caroline Searight, Client Services Manager for the IPF said "We often want to support injured players with these types of decisions, but it's not always possible to travel to everyone at short notice. This way I was able to 'meet' the supplier, and ask questions to help Peter get the right advice"
