Why Somfit Pro is Ideal for Young Adults Aged 15-17 With
Sleep-Related Breathing Issues

Are you a concerned parent of a young adult aged between 15 and 17? Navigating the world of sleep-related issues can be challenging. That's where Somfit Pro steps in, perfectly designed to meet the needs of this age group who are too young for Medicare but require a comprehensive sleep assessment.

Age-Specific BMI Assessment

Firstly, we understand that every individual is different. Keeping that in mind, we employ the Healthy weight calculator for children and teenagers from the NSW government. This calculator is specially designed to assess age-specific BMI, ensuring your child's unique developmental stage and growth pattern is considered.

BEARS Screening Questionnaire

One of the highlights of our approach is the BEARS screening questionnaire. This tool is not only user-friendly but also available online, making it accessible anytime, anywhere. This questionnaire serves a pivotal role in laying the foundation for a comprehensive understanding of the sleep issues your child might be facing.

Collaboration with Sleep Physicians and Local Professionals

The BEARS questionnaire acts as a bridge connecting you with a sleep physician and your local professional. The insights gathered from the questionnaire enable these experts to delve deep into any sleep-disordered breathing concerns your child may have. Together, they will engage in a meaningful discussion with you, ensuring that you're well-informed and empowered to make the best decisions for your child's health.

In conclusion, young adults between 15 and 17 years old often find themselves in a healthcare gray area. They're not quite children but are still too young for many adult-oriented healthcare options. That's why Somfit Pro is tailored to fill this gap. By combining age-specific tools like the NSW Healthy weight calculator and the BEARS screening questionnaire with expert consultation, Somfit Pro stands as a beacon of hope for parents seeking specialized care for their young adults' sleep-related breathing issues.
