ST. GEORGE, Utah, Jan. 17, 2023 /PRNewswire/ — Health in Transportation, a health and wellness solution provider for the transportation industry, has partnered with health technology giant NuraLogix to deliver a revolutionary preventative health tool for drivers called CDL Health Scanner.
Accessed through a specific URL on a smartphone, CDL Health Scanner’s proprietary technology uses the smartphone’s camera to scan an individual’s face and analyze key vital signs. This unique, driver-centric system relies on revolutionary technology by Anura to measure Blood Pressure using patented Transdermal Optical Imaging delivered through the smartphone camera. When combined with the user’s Body Mass Index (BMI) data, the risk-factors for hypertension, type-2 diabetes, and even Obstructive Sleep Apnea (OSA) are revealed to the individual user through an easy-to-interpret results page.
“It’s an exciting day for the transportation industry,” said Bob Perry, president of Health in Transportation. “For less than the cost of a couple coffee drinks, this new smartphone app will provide life-saving health information to drivers, potentially salvaging thousands of driving careers. Our partnership with NuraLogix and Anura is dedicated to bringing innovative solutions to directly impact the driver shortage and help keep America’s professional drivers on the road instead of being sidelined due to bad health.”
This new, confidential CDL Health Scanner was developed specifically to protect a driver’s livelihood. With the transportation industry experiencing a shortage of close to 80,000 drivers each year– along with the fact that putting a new driver behind the wheel often involves a five-figure expense for the carrier–thousands of skilled drivers are disqualified from driving each month due to poor health outcomes such as high blood pressure, elevated sugar levels and/or OSA.
CDL Health Scanner not only alerts drivers of life-threatening health concerns, but it also provides health education focused on the driver and guides them toward resources that can assist with lifestyle changes. Often, drivers are completely unaware of some of these underlying medical conditions, and CDL Health Scanner aims to bring full awareness to these important metrics. The app provides support for drivers who may be at risk by providing them with the nearest location of one of the six thousand Higi health check stations where drivers can get free confirmation of their BP measurement using a traditional pressure cuff, in addition to customized health coaching from Medwell and sleep-apnea solutions by Dedicated Sleep.
