Health Risk Assessment screening is an essential and useful way to keep track of one’s health. Employer or an insurance company may offer a yearly health screening assessment to check general fitness as a health and wellness perks. Or an individual can request a health screening as they deem fit. The assessment can help identify any health risks and measures to take to minimise these risks. This is a great way to gain understand health risks and their progression with time. It also ensures that one leads a healthy lifestyle. Health risk assessment screenings also flag areas of concern that may otherwise be overlooked and provides an opportunity to delay developing these conditions or avoid it altogether.
Health Risk Assessments of this kind are usually carried out by a doctor or other health care professional at a private hospital or a service provider who offers health risk assessment solutions as a service. These assessments generally begin by taking personal details like name, gender, age and such basic details and proceeds to collect physiological information like height, weight, hip to waist ratio and BMI. The concerned person can also discuss and take information regarding lifestyle choices, such as daily activity levels, smoking and drinking habits, dietary and exercise routines and, depending on the requirements, fertility health. They may then also check vital statistics, such as blood pressure, cholesterol and blood sugar levels and a urine test.
In a traditional setting, blood sugar and cholesterol levels are generally taken via blood test either through a finger prick or a venipuncture. This causes pain and has the risk of infections. This is a deterrent for many to go for health risk assessments. Aarca Research’s solution IHRA is addressing this pain point by providing non-invasive screening solution for Type 2 diabetes, Hypertension and Dyslipidemia.
Our medically-reviewed invention is not only non-invasive but has no radiation. Our product is a single touchpoint, portable solution for large-scale screenings. For our deep-tech product, the input is a thermal video of the user’s face, and output is the real-time risk index for Type 2 diabetes, Hypertension and Dyslipidemia. This also offers the diagnosis of three diseases with a single screening without necessitating multiple tests. As the next steps of our screening, further tests can be taken if they are deemed necessary or advised. This is a valuable opportunity to talk to a health care professional in detail about the risk of developing these conditions and the precautions to take. A blood test might not be able to provide early detection while IHRA can. One can also speak to dieticians and coaches to identify diet plans that can help reduce these risks.
Once the assessment screening is complete, IHRA solution also provides a report that can be kept as a record and can be used to compare any later assessments with and monitor the progression of the risk and impact of the precautions taken and its effectiveness.
