Episode Tease

When you think fitness product, your probably don't go immediately to truck drivers, though perhaps it should. National surveys suggest that 86% of drivers are overweight and 57% are obese. This makes sense considering the incredibly long stints that truck drivers take on, almost entirely sitting and laying down.

An employee for Prime Inc., a trucking company, came up with his solution to the problem after personally gaining 15 pounds joining the company. The product measures small, incremental changes in the drivers and alerts them to things they need to change to maintain or improve their health.

This product is so impactful on the health of truck drivers that they received a Digital Health Award because of the average 25 pound loss per driver.
