Unfortunately, on a regular basis we see reports in the media about the sudden death on the sports field of individuals who had no awareness that they may have a potentially life threatening affliction.
We know that in EVERY group of people there are latent health problems that remain un-diagnosed as their health advisers simply don't have access to the technology to undertake relevant screening.
Even within seemingly healthy and fit people there are often unknown issues around arterial stiffening, the Heart's ejection duration and also their oxygenation ratio. Heart & Cardio-vascular disease kills up to 50% of the population. In over 40% of fatal Heart attacks, the first symptom is sudden death. This includes all age groups as even young sports people can have genetic markers that will increase their risk.
With this in mind, along with our broader based health screening programs, Aware Medical has identified appropriate technologies and developed the relevant screening protocols to be able to deliver Sports Team Profiling.
The Sports Team Profiling capability can be delivered to each participant in just 10 minutes and includes:
b) We are able to provide specific targets for the participant to work towards with their trainers / health professionals. Depending on their profile we also rate them against tables recommending a focus on diet, exercise and/or medication.
