How the medical checkup works

  1. Reservation
    Once you as a manager have ordered the service, we book your employee for the medical checkup. The time will be announced by e-mail to your employee and to you as the orderer. The employee fills out a questionnaire and bring to the visit. If you ordered medical checkups for a group of employees, you will be contacted for dialogue and planning of the medical checks.
  2. Medical check-up
    The medical checkup focuses on the neck, shoulders, arms and hands and is carried out by a physiotherapist.
  3. Feedback
    The employee receives feedback from the physiotherapist and written feedback is sent to you as the orderer via encrypted email.
    In the case of a group order, group reports can be ordered extra and feedback of results is done in agreement when planning the assignment.


You as a manager or authorized customer can order services directly online. After you have placed your order, we will send you a confirmation email.
