At EvolveWell, our Functional testing includes altered body mass. This testing may allow for early detection and prevention of disease.

Bio-Impedance Analysis (BIA): is a technique used to determine the composition of the body, particularly the body fat levels. This is a simple test that is used to analyze body composition: the relation of body fat to lean body mass. This is a much more valuable test than a body mass index (BMI). Information is also provided on hydration, overall nutritional health, cell membrane health, possible need for detoxification and detection of an altered body mass allows for early detection and prevention of disease.

Heart Rate Variability (HRV): measures the electrical activity of the heart that is controlled by the autonomous nervous system. It measures the tone in the sympathetic nervous system. This is a reflection of a person’s ability to adapt to a stress and the ability to relax, and gives us information on the effect that stress has on an individual.

Digital Pulse Analysis (DPA): provides information on arterial wall stiffness. This Health Canada approved and FDA cleared, user-friendly, non-invasive device that observes the changes in pressure, blood flow, velocity and the profile throughout the pulse wave.The DPA testing acquires data for assessing the potential for vascular disease. This is an additional screening test for early atherosclerosis and cardiovascular disease.
