When you buy a motorcar you know that sooner or later it will need servicing and that checks need to be made on the major components like the brakes or exhaust systems. Unlike a car our bodies are far more complex and important to us and don’t come with a service manual or easy to obtain "spare parts".  Many people know how to check a tyre’s air pressure or the oil levels on their car, but have little idea about how to go about checking or improving their health. 
 

There are a range of tools which can be used to measure your current health level.
