2. Appointment |approx. 1.0 – 1.5 h:

Which examination devices are used?

We examine you with the latest technology. Phillips Affiniti CVx STd. is available for your ultrasound examination.
Stress ECG:
For the stress ECG, the Ergoselect 12 from Ergoline is available with high-precision measurement technology. It has an integrated blood pressure measurement and is approved for a patient weight up to 200 kg. ECG recording takes place via a continuous 12-lead derivative.
Body Fat Analysis (BIA Measurement)
The measurement takes place with the high-precision scale Seca mBCA 555, which is equipped with state-of-the-art technology and approved for patients up to 300 kg. The measurement result is delivered by the scale within a few seconds. Fat and fat-free mass, total body water, extracellular water, intracellular water and skeletal muscle mass are analyzed.

What should you pay attention to before the appointment?

  • Don’t forget your vaccination certificate
  • Please wear sportswear at the 2 appointment (you might sweat during the stress ECG) and bring a towel to dry off after the stress, if necessary.
  • Please appear sober for the check-up

When is a repetition of the check-up necessary?

In general, we recommend carrying out the check-up once a year. This gives you a good view of your health. If disease processes are detected early, they can often be treated well or cured at an early stage

Are the costs covered by my health insurance?

The billing of the basic check-up is carried out according to the applicable fee schedule for doctors (GOA). You will receive a medical bill statement via mail. Cash payments are unfortunately not possible.

Private health insurance usually covers the entire cost of the examination. If you are unsure about the assumption of costs, please clarify this in advance with your health insurance company.

The public health insurance offers a separate preventive examination every three years in a very reduced form (See Check-Up 35)
