What should I expect at my Pre- Employment Medical?
This is dependent on your future employers regulations and policy but will usually involve a range of motion assessment to ensure all your joints move through a normal range, a strength assessment which involves assessments like grip strength, push ups, safe lifting of specific weights and a push/ pull test. You will also be required to complete some sort of cardio requirement for heart rate and fitness monitoring, usually in the form of step ups.
What should I wear to my Pre- Employment Medical?
Please wear clothes that you can move comfortably in, eg shorts and a T-shirt and closed in shoes, preferably runners or training shoes. You may like to bring a water bottle and a towel. You should refrain from smoking, drinking alcohol and having a large meal immediately before your assessment at Extend Physiotherapy.
