Lifeclinic Teams Up With Trucking Industry to Promote Health and Wellness to Over-the-Road Professionals
Date:6/23/2009

Lifeclinic and Ramp Media create synergy to meet the health and wellness needs of our nation's over-the-road drivers and will showcase their efforts at The Great West Truck Show held at the Las Vegas Convention Center June 25-27, 2009.

Burtonsville, MD (PRWEB) June 23, 2009 -- Lifeclinic International, Inc., the world's leading manufacturer and distributor of automated blood pressure monitors and health testing stations, is exhibiting its LC500 Health Station with Ramp Media (booth # 1345) at The Great West Truck Show held at the Las Vegas Convention Center June 25-27, 2009.

Featured at the Ramp Media booth will be the LC500 -- a wellness health station that is truck terminal-friendly health. The LC500 can measure blood pressure, weight, body fat, BMI and blood oxygen tests, and has glucose meter and pedometer upload capability. IR (infrared) and USB ports are standard for uploading data from various other personal health devices. Commercial drivers can easily navigate through the LC500's test options and health information via a 10.4" color LCD touch screen.

"The new LC500 models have been a huge success as we've almost completed our first in-terminal screening for one of our HTAA Charter Fleet Members. Since the information is able to be recorded we can really get a good snapshot as to the actual health of the fleet drivers and know what areas we need to focus on first," said Jenny Shefsky, Ramp Media's Associate Publisher. Shefsky added, "RAMP Media Group oversees the Healthy Trucking Association of America. HTAA is devoted to helping our nation's drivers get healthy and live longer lives. With current statistics showing that over-the-road professionals now have an average life expectancy of less than 60 years, HTAA realizes that there is a pressing need within the trucking industry for an organization that is dedicated to improving the health and wellness of its commercial driver population."

The LC500 is Internet-ready for secure, HIPAA-compliant, open source integration into most network environments and can easily interface with existing wellness applications so that all data gathered by it can be saved. The LC500, along with Lifeclinic's Web-based GroupStat management system, can collect, track and manage real-time biometric data, for individuals or in the aggregate, to improve the overall outcome of corporate health programs. Commercial drivers can also manage their own data from any Web browser via Lifeclinic.com or the employer's own Web site or health portal. Features include both a magnetic stripe and barcode reader for employee identification badges and cards.
