Rolling Strong, an organization that provices truck drivers with wellness programs, has deployed kiosks to help drivers monitor their heath.
The kiosks, called HealthCenters and manufactured by Stayhealthy, offer assessments including measurements of weight, blood pressure, body composition, BMI calculation and basic vision, according to a company press release.
"We believe by adding the HealthCENTER to convenient locations such as The Kroger Company grocery stores and pharmacies, truckers will have easy access to vital health tracking tools," Michael F. Cavotta, Stayhealthy EVP for strategic initiatives, said in the release. "By frequently measuring blood pressure, body fat levels, pulse rate and weight, it will aid in improving their overall health levels and help to eliminate the current shortage of truckers caused by failing their physicals. Helping to improve the health of truckers and their families will ensure they get and stay healthy, and stay productive on the road."
The kiosks also allow drivers to save their results to a HIPAA-compliant website and to share them with physicians, pharmacists or family members through Rolling Strong's Driver Wellness Tool Bag Program.
"Together, Rolling Strong and Stayhealthy are reaching drivers where they work and live, out there on the road," Bob Perry, chairman of the American Trucking Association's Safety Management Council's Health & Wellness Working Group and president of Rolling Strong, said in the release. "Together, we are giving them the tools they need to stay in front of their health, bringing them home safe to their families."
