Personalised Assessment for Tailored Health (PATH)
Health assessments which are inclusive in scope but individual in nature and flexible to suit all organisations and employees.
Posture and movement health
Musculoskeletal conditions are the leading cause of pain and disability in the UK, and a major cause of workplace absence and productivity loss. The quality and range of your movement can influence your susceptibility to experiencing and living with pain. During your assessment your health and wellbeing physiologist will perform a functional movement screening. This will assess your mobility, stability and strength, to help you to make proactive changes to your work, home and exercise routines to optimise your movement and reduce your risk of future pain and injury. This module is not recommended for those currently experiencing muscle and joint pain. If you are in pain then physiotherapy would be more appropriate in this instance.

Cancer risk reduction
This module includes time spent with a physiologist in which your lifetime risk of breast, bowel or lung cancer is estimated based on your lifestyle habits and other known risk factors. Our physiologist will work with you to create a personalised action plan to improve your lifestyle and reduce your future risk by focusing on modifiable risk factors. This module is not suitable for those who have already been diagnosed with cancer.
Fitness is a leading predictor of health, with poor cardiorespiratory fitness increasing the risk of various diseases. This module will provide you with your fitness level, fitness age and heart rate training zones. You will have a coaching session with your physiologist who will use this information to help to structure your exercise sessions and enhance your fitness levels. They will also help you identify any changes you need to make to your diet, exercise levels and lifestyle to maximise your fitness.
Stress and resilience management
We all feel stress from time to time. However the volume, frequency and how we manage this stress is key to our health and wellbeing. During the health assessment, and using data from Trium®, we will assess your psychological stress levels and then using cutting edge technology, we will measure your physiological response to stressors and cognitive capacity. Using a uniquely designed workbook, which you will take away with you, your physiologist will help you to explore techniques to help you respond better during stressful situations to improve your emotional wellbeing.
Over half a million people in the UK have diabetes without knowing it. We will look for risk factors by measuring your key blood markers and analysing your urine. Using the measures collected during your assessment, and information from Trium®, we will assess your risk of developing diabetes in the next 10 years using a clinically validated tool. Our clinicians will then discuss your results and help you manage your blood sugar levels through exercise, nutrition and other lifestyle changes to reduce your risk of developing diabetes in the future.
Energy and sleep health
This module reviews daily sleep and energy patterns, sleep hygiene, nutrition and lifestyle factors to understand where energy is being depleted and where it can be naturally improved. Using personalised coaching with your physiologist this module is ideal for those looking to optimise performance and find more energy throughout the day.
Lifestyle management for healthy hearts
A healthy heart is essential for your overall health, and this depends a lot on the way you live. Regular exercise and healthy eating are significant factors in combating high blood pressure and high cholesterol, both of which can contribute to heart disease. This module includes a health and lifestyle analysis – including a review of nutrition and exercise habits – blood pressure, blood glucose, cholesterol profile and a heart disease prevention action plan following tailored lifestyle coaching with a physiologist. Using the measurements collected during your assessment, and information from Trium®, we will assess your risk of having a cardiovascular event in the next 10 years using a clinically validated tool.
Healthy weight loss
With a plethora of weight loss advice available, our physiologist will guide you through the evidence to let you know what really works using our uniquely designed weight loss guide. Using this personalised guide, which you will be provided a copy of, your physiologist will help you set realistic goals, understand how to manage sustainable behaviour change and advise you on correct calorie consumption and activity levels. You will also be offered a number of healthy meal suggestions to support your journey.
