Health in Transportation & NuraLogix’s new app allows drivers to perform CDL health checkups that target hypertension and type 2 diabetes.

This application, called CDL Health Analyzer, allows drivers to quickly scan key vitals using an iPhone or Android device. It’s a unique, driver-centric system based on groundbreaking technology Anuran technology for measuring blood pressure (BP) using optical transdermal imaging delivered through a smartphone camera. When combined with user body mass index (BMI) data, risk factors for hypertension, type 2 diabetes, and even obstructive sleep apnea (OSA), the scourge truckers on the road, are clearly highlighted.

The background

In a situation where the industry is experiencing a shortage of nearly 100,000 drivers – and when putting a new driver behind the wheel involves five-figure expenses for the carrier – Reducing the number of medical disqualifications resulting from a Department of Transportation physical examination is the top priority. Nearly 80% of these disqualifications are caused by high BP, dangerous blood sugar levels and OSA, and this app not only warns drivers they’re in dangerous territory, but also connects them to coaches specialist health professionals who can guide lifestyle changes that will transform their health.

The main ones of Health in transport have a proven track record, spanning decades, of finding realistic ways for drivers to improve their health, despite the enormous challenges that life on the road creates. The CDL Health Analyzer is the culmination of this work and their greatest achievement. It promises to protect the lives and livelihoods of hundreds of thousands of professional drivers whose life expectancies are several years shorter than their contemporaries. Fleets also benefit by reducing driver replacement costs, while realizing savings in their self-funded health insurance programs.

The partnership

It would be impossible for Health in transport to offer this valuable tool to the transport sector without the incredible breakthrough that the Anuran represents technology. Equally important, by opting for a partnership with Health in transport, NuraLogixComment ensured that this product could be provided to drivers for just pennies a day. The hallmark of true innovation is its ability to impact the lives of millions of people and this app is the first step in making that happen.

Of course the CDL Health Analyzer the application uses only part of the monitoring capacity which NuraLogixComment is equipped to provide. However, getting Anuran in the hands of hundreds of thousands of professional drivers will generate a wealth of data that can only improve the Anuran platform when, as it inevitably will, this kind of non-intrusive health monitoring becomes the norm for in-vehicle information systems. Truckers, many of whom drive vehicles equipped with interior cameras that monitor their situational awareness and other performance metrics, are the ideal population to help propel this concept into the mainstream.
