Corrected Press Release

Please note the following corrected press release. A previous release sent on January 17 contained incorrect or outdated information.

ST. GEORGE, Utah, Jan. 26, 2023 /PRNewswire/ -- Health in Transportation, a health and wellness solution provider for the transportation industry, released 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 a smartphone camera to scan an individual's face and analyze key vital signs. This unique, driver-centric system uses revolutionary technology from NuraLogix, called Transdermal Optical Imaging (TOI)™, in which a conventional video camera is used to extract blood flow information from the face. Risk factors for hypertension, type-2 diabetes and more are revealed to the individual user on 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 health information to drivers, potentially salvaging thousands of driving careers. Our partnership with NuraLogix 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 drivers. 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.

CDL Health Scanner not only alerts drivers of potentially serious 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 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.

CDL Health Scanner can be purchased by visiting www.cdlhealthscanner.com.
