In addition to blood screening, we offer optional screenings like blood pressure, height and weight, BMI, waist measurement, visceral fat, skeletal muscle, and body fat. These provide important information on current and potential medical issues as well as baseline data for corporate wellness programs.
Biometric Screening Options
- Blood Pressure—Systolic vs Diastolic? Systolic blood pressure is generally the top of the two blood pressure numbers, this measures the pressure in your arteries when your heart muscles contract. Diastolic blood pressure measures the pressure in your arteries when your heart muscles are resting between beats and filling with blood.
- Height and Weight—Have you shrunk in height and grown in weight?
- Body Mass Index (BMI) – What does that mean? Height to Weight Ratio.
- Waist Measurement—Do you know what your waist measurement means? Measuring over 40” for men and 35” for women can mean you are at a higher risk of developing heart disease, diabetes and metabolic syndrome.
- Visceral Fat—Visceral fat is the fat that is stored in the abdominal cavity and is therefore stored around a number of important organs such as the liver, heart, pancreas and intestines. High levels of visceral fat increases the risk of type 2 diabetes, heart disease and numerous types of cancer.
- Skeletal Muscle—Increasing your skeletal muscle can improve your health in many different ways including decreasing body fat, speeding your metabolism and increasing your bone density!
- Body Fat—Knowing your body fat percentage is a great baseline to get you started on a healthy path. Focus on loosing body fat rather than pounds and you can avoid being discouraged by fluctuating scale readings.
Aggregate Statistic Packages
- WHS has designed aggregate Biometric Client Reports to provide you with an overall view if participants were in normal, low or high range. This information can used to plan and build your wellness program so that education and programs are utilized in needed areas.
- The laboratory provides aggregate blood screening statistics for sites with 50+ participants. This also assists in planning education and information programs where needed.
