Medel Healthcare were delighted to answer the call when approached by Senior Roscommon Ladies Football manager Diane O’Hora to perform full cardiac health screens on their senior ladies football team. Over the past number of years Medel Healthcare have been one of the first to recgonise the change in lifestyles and especially the change in players approach to training, speaking on the importance of this Medel Healthcare’s CEO Thomas Browne explained “Training methods and standards have improved greatly for all GAA players over the last 10 -15 years. Management teams are asking more of their players without asking the question Are they able?? for the workload placed upon them”
Medel Healthcare believe that it should become mandatory for each player to be tested pre season in preparation for the coming training schedule which these days can now be described as a Professional. A number of factors are at play when dealing with athletes but one that is most overlooked is player health.
