Phone holder assembly
After acquiring the appropriate LEGO bricks (see the Resource tab), the simple phone holder can be assembled according to the pattern shown:
DOT Mat assembly
Print out all three pages of the DOT mat template (see the Resource tab) and align them to create a single 11 x 24 inch mat. Either affix the templates to sturdy cardboard or use clear packing tape to add strength and durability to the mat.
Placement of the DOT Mat
Choose a consistent location for video DOT to simplify daily setup and tear down. Have the patient sit in a chair facing a flat table with the assembled DOT mat in front of them, with the medication and water indicators on the side closest to the patient and the mat aligned with the edge of the table.
Place the phone in the phone holder with the camera function on in selfie mode. Adjust the position of the phone holder and the angle of the phone in the holder so that the patient's face and DOT mat are in view. Assure that the medication and water indicators are in view. Trace the location of the phone holder in permanent ink onto the DOT mat.
Daily use of the DOT Mat
Instruct the patient to assemble the video DOT setup the same way each day to ensure usable videos. The placement of the phone in the holder is especially important.
