Our ATLAS Endeavour is a pre-participation heart screening program aimed at reducing the risk of sudden deaths and injury during exercise or any physically intensive activity. Before signing up for a pre-participation screening program, here is some information you may need to know. There are 3 components to this pre-participation screening program and they are:
- Pre-participation heart check (i.e. cardiovascular screening) to reduce the risk of sudden death
- Pre-participation muscular-skeletal screening to identify injuries that need to be managed to prevent aggravation or to identify factors that may predispose the participants to future injuries
- Identify factors that may limit performance, e.g. anemia or existing medications etc
