Truck drivers may develop health problems because of their work environment. If they get a medical condition that affects their ability to drive, it could cost them their commercial driving license.
It has been found OTR truck drivers are more likely to smoke, be overweight, and are less likely to be physically active compared to other US workers.
We have partnered with Proficient Healthcare Solutions to offer remote monitoring & care management services to truckers.
Remote monitoring is offered for those that suffer with diabetes, hypertension, obesity, and sleep apnea. Truck drivers are paired with a nurse to monitor their vitals & ensure they are able to pass their DOT physical. The nurse will assess your situation, provide the equipment to monitor your stats, provide education, coordinate things with your doctor(s), and support you through your journey.
This is also a great service for trucking company owners to offer to their truck drivers.
