Rolling Strong has unveiled a new wellness and health platform for truckers
Rolling Strong, a company providing wellness programs for truckers, has launched a new mobile health and wellness platform. The new app was unveiled at the Truckload Carriers Association 2017 WorkForce Builders Conference in Riverside, Mo. The app aims to improve driver’s health, safety and retention.
Rolling Strong was acquired by Velocity in March. The acquisition was a catalyst for the development of the mobile health and wellness platform for the trucking industry. The app, available for iOS and Android, was developed with the input of Stephen Kane, president of Rolling Strong.
Kane, together with Bob Perry, COO and founder of Rolling Strong, using his experiences as a truck driver, combined the mobile technology and a CDL wellness program designed by Perry to develop the final product.
The app provides drivers with guidance and tracking of meals, exercise, sleep and other fitness information. For better user experience, the app contains wellness challenges and competitions.
“Driver health and wellness is a key issue getting a lot of attention,” Kane said. “However, until now there hasn’t been a tangible program to fully address the needs or the importance of the situation.”
“The new Rolling Strong health and wellness platform is truly built for drivers and is designed to address the concerns over their health and safety,” Kane added. “It provides the knowledge and resources drivers need to prevent health risks and adopt beneficial lifestyles.”
“With our new health and wellness platform, our entire team is now focused on the industry’s number one asset— the driver—because these men and woman deserve an opportunity to be healthy,” said Bob Perry, chief operating officer and founder of Rolling Strong. “We’re excited that Velociti’s expertise in automating this process is now powering our ability to reach more drivers with our approach to improving wellness, and more trucking companies with a platform that will lead to better retention and safety.”
