Large-scale new health clinic opens in Dubai

A new health and fitness clinic, dubbed a “health assessment facility” has opened its doors on Palm Jumeirah in Dubai.

The 1,579sq m Nano M is part of Emirates Healthcare Group, a leading UAE health provider, and centred on a concept of both treating existing and preventing future health issues.

The clinic, whose target client group is sports men and women, features a high-tech Sports and Human Performance Laboratory, with an indoor running track, and high-definition cameras.

In a statement, the clinic explained that the cameras “monitor nano movement from every angle and at every level possible, providing an in-depth 3D assessment of the customer’s body and motion” 

Services at the Sports and Human Performance Laboratory include the measuring of cardio-metabolic fitness and muscle kinetics, among other options.

In addition to the services offered to current and former athletes, the clinic also incorporates a Medical Assessment Centre, treating all types of patients.

Treatments and services at the centre range from ultrasounds, MRIs and DNA screenings to dental services, stress ECGs, electrocardiograms and echocardiograms.

Nano M is the brainchild of orthopaedic consultant Dr Bikram J Singh, a fellow of the Royal College of Surgeons in Edinburgh and Dublin and of the British Orthopaedic Association.

Dr Singh, who is the founder and chief executive of Nano M and has a background in the UK’s National Health Service and a history of treating athletes, said:

“We believe the comprehensive analysis that Nano M provides will set a whole new standard of medical assessment for sportsmen and women around the world.

“We have brought together the most advanced medical technology and the best medical minds in their respective fields, to create a facility that is capable of exploring and examining every movement, every muscle group and every joint.”
