RNLI Wellpoint Kiosk Comes to Mike's Dive Store

RNLI Wellpoint Kiosk Comes to Mike's Dive Store

We all know that our health is important but when was the last time you had a check up? As divers we put our bodies under some fairly unusual stresses, we saturate it with nitrogen and then ask it to release it all again, we subject it to increased pressure, lift and carry heavy equipment on a regular basis.

With all those extra factors affecting our bodies it is important to take a little extra care of it and our health to ensure we are fit to continue diving. In line with that we are working with the RNLI and DDRC Healthcare to promote the importance of cardiac health for divers.

From Tuesday 19th December 2017 we’ll be hosting a Wellpoint kiosk, which measures heart rate, blood pressure, weight, BMI and body fat. It also estimates the risk of developing cardiovascular disease in the next 10 years and estimates your heart age. It's quick and easy to use and guides you through a short Q&A about lifestyle and then gives you a personalised and confidential health statement. 

RNLI Wellpoint Kiosk

It’s part of an RNLI campaign which is encouraging divers, particularly men aged 45+, to have a general medical health check with a healthcare professional or diving doctor in order to reduce their chances of having a medical incident whilst diving.

We’ll have the Wellpoint kiosk in the store until the end of February. It's completely free, takes about 10 minutes and you can use it as often as you wish. Just pop into the shop and we'll show you how.
