Philips offers free health checks to all Women’s Healthcare 2010 visitors

At the Women’s Healthcare 2010 exhibition, Royal Philips Electronics will be showcasing its latest innovations designed to improve not only women’s health and lifestyle but their families’ too. The company will also offer visitors of the show free health checks to help educate and encourage the public to focus on ‘prevention before curing’

The event will be taking place from the 7th to the 10th of April, 2010 at the Dubai International Convention and Exhibition Centre, Hall 4.

A specially created health check booth will be located at the venue providing visitors free, quick and simple health checks such as glucose, cholesterol, lung capacity, body mass index and blood pressure. Philips has a long experience in Women’s Healthcare and is committed to help improve it by extending its knowledge on prevention before cure. Performing basic tests can help spot early warning signs of heart problems and diabetes, which are prevalent in the region.

Well-being is not just about Healthcare, but also about how we live our lives. Philips continually strives to understand the changing needs of its consumers and the key factors that influence them. People are becoming more health-conscious, spurning junk and convenience foods and drinks in favour of nutritious alternatives. Consumers also lead busy lives and don’t have time to cook elaborate meals every night of the week. Philips knows its consumers and understands that they want effective products that do the job well,”
