A comprehensive review of your employee’s health.
Health Screening is an excellent way to identify employees who may be at risk of serious cardiovascular issues. These one-to-one assessments involve an oral health check, blood pressure, body composition analysis with the option of a small finger-prick to draw a blood sample, which is then analysed in minutes to produce the attendee’s cholesterol scores.
These are key indicators of cardiovascular health, as unmanaged levels can contribute to cardiovascular conditions such as type-2 diabetes, heart attacks and strokes.

How do the Body Composition Scales Work?
Safe, low-level electrical signals are passed through the body via footpads on the monitor platform. It is easy for the signal to flow through fluids in the muscle and other body tissues but meets resistance as it passes through body fat. This resistance is called impedance. The impedance readings are then entered into medically researched mathematical formulas to calculate your percentage body fat.
What is Blood Pressure?
Blood pressure is the force exerted by blood against the walls of the arteries. Systolic pressure occurs when the heart contracts. Diastolic pressure occurs when the heart expands. Blood pressure is measured in millimetres of mercury (mmHg). One’s natural blood pressure is represented by the fundamental pressure, which is measured first thing in the morning while one is still at rest and before eating.
