What do we do?
Our MOTs consist of a health check, followed by a musculoskeletal assessment and are delivered using the University’s world-class facilities. We deliver MOTs to individuals as well as to small and large organisations.
How do we do it?
Our comprehensive health checks provide all the information needed to help you work towards improving your health and reaching your fitness goals. The checks include:
The musculoskeletal assessment provides individuals with the chance to have any injuries assessed. While sports massage, exercise rehabilitation and gait analysis are all available if required.
Students studying a range of health and wellbeing related courses deliver health checks, supervised by a member of staff.
A ‘body MOT’ is suitable for people of all ages and ability, regardless of age or ability.
Our Health and Wellbeing MOT can be booked by individuals or by organisations. Corporate clients can take advantage of facilities at Marjon, including meeting rooms for team building activities, swimming pool, gym and café. Alternatively, companies can to stagger the sessions over time and are given a unique booking link which enables their staff to book in at a time that suits them.
Chris Puleston is the Assistant Manager of the Sport and Health Science Laboratory and undertakes many of the MOT health checks.
Research shows that 30% of absences within the police force are related to musculoskeletal related pain and injuries. Police officers have been undergoing health checks at Marjon Health and Wellbeing, receiving individually tailored nutritional advice, functional fitness programs, and general advice to better support their wellbeing. After a successful initial pilot, police funding was agreed for all officers from three departments to attend Marjon University for health checks which comprised one hour in the health lab looking at things such as cholesterol, blood sugar, blood pressure, body composition, weight and more, followed by a further hour in the sports therapy clinic looking into any musculoskeletal pain or issues. Two departments have now completed the health check and 90% of attendees said the visit had a positive impact on how they manage their health & wellbeing.
“ “It was a nice break and felt like my health and wellbeing was being looked after. This is a huge step in the right direction. If this sort of thing were to become common place morale would be lifted, people would feel better.” Police Officer feedback.
"Cholesterol and blood glucose levels are not something people have tested often, I've observed that many of the officers have started asking questions on how to make positive changes to their health and wellbeing.” Eleanor James, student.“
