Screenings & Assessments

Our community outreach team performs screenings and tests at events throughout the entire Dayton community.

These screenings include:

An athletic trainer will evaluate and provide recommendations to optimize health and decrease the risk of injuries for the range of activities that your employees perform on site throughout their workday.

The biometric screening package includes the following components: lipid profile panel, glucose, body mass index, waist circumference, blood pressure, and an educational results review with a certified healthcare professional. This one-on-one private results review educates each employee about their screening results, national guidelines, individual needs, and resources for change if needed.

This screening provides a total lipid profile, including total cholesterol, HDL, LDL, triglycerides, and blood glucose. This requires a 12-hour fast and is performed with a simple finger stick. Results are available immediately and a results review is provided by a Kettering Health Network healthcare professional to educate each employee about their screening results, national guidelines, individual needs, and resources for change if needed.

Blood pressure screenings are provided on site at your facility. Educational review and literature are provided.

Lean versus fat weight is determined using a bioelectrical impedance machine. Height, weight, and body mass index are also calculated. Results are available immediately. Recommendations for healthy changes are provided by a Kettering Health Network healthcare professional.

Body mass index (BMI) is a number that is calculated from a person's weight and height. BMI is a good indicator of healthy or unhealthy body weight for men and women, regardless of body frame size, and is used to screen for weight categories that may lead to health problems.

An estimated one out of three American adults has prediabetes. Prediabetes not only increases the risk for Type 2 diabetes but also for heart attack and stroke. Type 2 diabetes may be prevented altogether in people with prediabetes. Take this assessment to identify your risk. Initial risk assessed by questionnaire; those identified as at-risk will have additional screening options for a fee.

This is a comprehensive 60-question online profile that includes lifestyle and behavior questions. A private personalized report is generated for the employee, and the employer receives an aggregate report that identifies high-risk areas of concern without identifying individual employees.

This package includes the Biometric Screening Package and Health Risk Assessment (both listed above). When the biometric data is combined with the results of the 60-question online profile, each employee gets a comprehensive look at his or her health risks in a private, personalized report. Administration gets an executive summary that identifies high-risk areas of concern among all employees without identifying individual employees. This base of information is used to build an effective wellness program tailored to specific areas of concern.

This screening calculates your vascular age and individual stroke risk. Non-invasive ultrasound screening shows plaque and abnormal blood flow in the arteries prone to plaque. This screening is for anyone age 40 or over and is appropriate for those who are younger if they have family history of heart disease, abnormal cholesterol, or diabetes. Various screening packages are available.

Also known as EKG, this screening provides information about the electrical activity of the heart. This information is kept on file for each patient so that it can be used as a baseline for future reference. Results are confirmed by a cardiologist and then mailed to each participant.

Nearly one third of those with diabetes are unaware that they have the disease. The A1c measures a person's average blood glucose control from the last two months. The test is performed by a finger stick, and the results are available immediately.

In this assessment, Kettering Sports Medicine's team of exercise physiologists and registered dietitians determines the number of calories a person's body burns each day, then analyzes each client's individual exercise and nutritional needs to create a personalized plan of action. This includes two 60-minute sessions. Area physicians have seen much success when recommending this service to their patients who are trying to understand weight management.

Metabolic syndrome is characterized by a cluster of risk factors, including abnormal obesity, elevated blood pressure, insulin resistance, low HDL (good) cholesterol, and high blood fats (triglycerides). People with metabolic syndrome are at higher risk of heart disease, stroke, and Type 2 diabetes. This screening consists of a total lipid profile, plus glucose, blood pressure, height, weight, and waist circumference. Participants will get same-day results and a personalized review to educate them about each screening result, national guidelines, individual needs, and resources for change if needed. A 12-hour fast is required for this screening.

A registered nurse will come to your worksite for two hours on a monthly or quarterly basis for blood pressure checks. Educational material will also be provided.

Muscular strength improves balance and the ability to perform everyday activities. Building muscular strength also decreases the risk of osteoporosis and reduces blood pressure and low back pain while increasing calorie burn.

Individuals who lack lower back and hamstring flexibility are more prone to low back pain. This sit-and-reach test will measure flexibility in those areas. An exercise physiologist will review the results and recommend stretching exercises.

This screening measures bone loss using state-of-the art ultrasound technology. The test takes less than 10 minutes. Results are available immediately and are reviewed with a Kettering Health Network healthcare professional; this review also includes tips to improve bone health. This test is not appropriate for anyone who has had a positive DXA scan or has been diagnosed with osteoporosis.

How a person sits and stands affects more than just the back and legs. Proper posture and balance will recruit the appropriate muscles and assist in functional movement and joint alignment. To ensure an individual gets the full benefits available from proper posture and ideal ergonomics, an athletic trainer assesses posture and provides tips to improve.

Strength is an important component of fitness. This strength test uses a dynamometer to measure general upper body strength. Results are reviewed with an exercise physiologist who can give suggestions on strength-training exercises for improvement.

This evaluation includes a screening of near and distant vision, field of view, contrast, and eye movement, as well as a functional impact survey.

Increased abdominal fat is associated with increased risk of heart disease and diabetes. In this assessment, a healthcare professional will measure waist circumference and compare to recommended values.

Stretching and strengthening exercises can boost job performance and decrease injury risk. We spend time learning your employees' everyday tasks and designing a program to help diminish fatigue and increase efficiency of work production.
