Measuring community health outcomes with a new body composition scanner

The 2016 Victorian Auditor General’s Report into aquatic and recreational facilities highlighted the need to improve the measurement and evaluation of community health outcomes, particularly those identified in community health and wellbeing plans.

“At the YMCA we know exactly how many people use the facilities, programs and services we manage in partnership with local government. What we can’t yet accurately measure are their health and wellbeing outcomes, both individual and aggregated, to capture a true picture of a population’s health and the role we play in positively influencing it,” said Nathan Costin, Development Manager at YMCA Victoria.

The medical grade, non­invasive scanners will be installed in YMCA-­managed facilities throughout Moreland, Dandenong, Boroondara, Knox, and Casey.

Ed Zouroudis, CEO of Evolt, said the scanner’s capacity to capture meaningful health data was central to the partnership with the YMCA and reinforced his company’s mission to empower people with the information they needed to make evidence-based decisions about their health and fitness.

“It [the Evolt360] gives individuals meaningful measures by which they can track their health and fitness, and de-­identified data can be collated to establish a baseline of a community’s health to measure the relative success of health interventions and the impact the YMCA is having on the population,” said Ed Zouroudis.

“This partnership has the potential to be a game-changer in the aquatic and recreation industry.”

YMCA aims is to recruit 5,000 members, profile their biopsychosocial health measures, and track changes in those measures through targeted health and wellbeing interventions.

7 REASONS EVOLT MAKES SENSE FOR YOUR FACILITY

1.

A Starting Point. Because the number one reason members quit a gym is that they don’t use it enough, Evolt gets them motivated by providing a baseline measurement of the overall fitness. This motivates them to improve and provides an easy-to-understand measurement of their progress.

2.

Better Nutrition. By using the free Evolt app, your clients can easily monitor the macronutrient breakdown that is updated with each scan. It takes the guesswork out of a nutrition plan.

3.

Easy Reporting. Through Evolt Insights, our cloud-based reporting program, trainers have easy access to member profiles, allowing them to monitor their workouts and progress. It also facilitates automated Club Challenges.

4.

Recurring Revenue. Evolt 360 actually creates a third revenue stream after membership dues and personal training fees. Do the math: If you add just $20 per month to your base membership for one scan a month, each client adds up to an additional $240 a year — $4800 a year for getting as few as 20 clients on the machine.

5.

Unique Lead Generation. You can take your Evolt 360 out of the club to special events. Think health and wellness fairs, senior centers and recreation programs! The lead generation opportunities are limited only by your staff’s imagination.

6.

Training for Trainers. We don’t just send you a box and leave you on your own. Evolt provides a proven on-boarding program for all new clients to make sure everyone understands the process and the science. Your success is our success.

7.

Backed by Science. Evolt 360 is the exact opposite of a one-size-fits-all product. Its science accounts for the unique and personalized characteristics of every individual. Just like your club should!

8.

And one more thing: Scientific literature has written time and time again that there is no such thing as a direct measure of body composition — except in a post-mortem dissection of a cadaver. Scientific validation of BIA technology has proven the use of specific algorithms that consider age and gender to improve the accuracy of body composition measurement. The Evolt 360 takes that even further by incorporating five specific personalized variables – height, weight, gender, age and impedance – to provide the most accurate body composition measurement for any individual.
