Through preventative screenings, employees learn how to live healthier, reduce their risk for certain diseases and decrease stress.
Atlantic Corporate Health's early detection screenings include:
- Biometric – These tests measure blood glucose, blood pressure, body composition and cholesterol levels.
- Bone density – A non-invasive ultrasound of the wrist assesses risk for developing osteoporosis. Participants can be male or female and should be over 35; those under 35 can be screened if there is a family history.
- Feet – A board-certified podiatrist will examine all aspects of the feet: skin, circulation, flexibility, pain and balance.
- Fitness – An exercise specialist will assess mobility, strength and health history to design an individualized exercise program.
- Hearing – A board-certified audiologist will inspect the ear canal and use pure-tone to assess the ability to hear select pitches. These tests can be completed in a quiet room at the employer's location.
- Respiratory – Also known as spirometry, this test measures lung function to assess risk for asthma, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) and other conditions that affect breathing.
- Sun damage – Also known as a facial analyzer, this screening identifies both epidermal and dermal damage to the skin on the face.
- Vision – A clinician will test vision for farsight, nearsight and color.
After screenings are completed, an Atlantic Health System clinician provides employees with results and counseling, as well as follow-up instructions, educational material and physician referrals, if necessary.
