Why is pre-exercise screening important?

Before a person undertakes exercise, we need to know whether it is safe for him or her to exercise. This is not only to ensure the safety of the exerciser, but also to make sure that you are fulfilling your duty of care. Although there is no specific law that requires you to conduct pre-exercise screening or describes how to do it, it is part of your duty to care for your clients. Professional associations for exercise specialists, such as the American College of Sports Medicine (ACSM) and the Australian Association for Exercise and Sports Science (AAESS), acknowledge that pre-exercise screening is an important part of the duties of an exercise specialist. With the HealthScreen software you meet this need quickly and easily.
