Wellbeing and Lifestyle Health Interventions
An executive medical may be required by your company’s insurance policy. Aside from this however, a health assessment can give you baseline information about your health and help you to make any necessary improvements or preventative measures, leading to increased feelings of wellness and peace of mind, especially for busy professionals in executive roles.
Most of our executive medicals include a head to toe physical examination, including examination of the heart and chest, blood pressure, height, weight, fat ratio, near vision, distance vision, colour vision and hearing health. In addition, most medicals can include extensive blood testing that will give a detailed overview of health. ECGs can be included if clinically appropriate.
Medical body composition analysis can also be offered, detecting an individual’s muscle mass, fat mass, phase angle and visceral fat using the only body composition analyser designed and validated for medical use.
The phase angle measures the health of the body’s cells. Conclusions about nutrition, body cell regeneration, or water retention can be drawn from the phase angle.
Visceral fat uncovers hidden belly fat. Visceral fat is dangerous belly fat that is known to increase the risk of type 2 diabetes, heart and cardiovascular diseases. Even if it is excessive it can be invisible, because it ‘hides’ between the organs in the body’s core.
Tailored Health and Wellbeing Day
A report from Price Waterhouse Coopers showed a return of £2.67 for every £1 invested in employee wellbeing. While poor diet, alcohol and cigarettes have a severe effect on long-term health, stress and physical inactivity often have the biggest impact on day to day organisational productivity usually through sickness / absence (Britain’s Healthiest Workplace survey 2016).
