LAS VEGAS, NV -- (Marketwire) -- 05/31/12 -- Rolling Strong™ is proud to partner with Stayhealthy to bring professional drivers access to a vitally important health tool; the Stayhealthy kiosk known as the HealthCENTER.

"Rolling Strong has distinguished itself by being the only company aggressively addressing trucker's health where, so to speak, the rubber meets the road," said Michael F. Cavotta, Stayhealthy EVP Strategic Initiatives. "We believe by adding the HealthCENTER to convenient locations such as The Kroger Company grocery stores and pharmacies, truckers will have easy access to vital health tracking tools. By frequently measuring blood pressure, body fat levels, pulse rate and weight, it will aid in improving their overall health levels and help to eliminate the current shortage of truckers caused by failing their physicals. Helping to improve the health of truckers and their families will ensure they get and stay healthy, and stay productive on the road."

Rolling Strong™ is proud to offer its proactive wellness solution to aid professional drivers, their families and the transportation industry in getting their health back on the road. The Rolling Strong Driver Wellness Tool Bag Program includes access to the best wellness member loyalty card in the transportation industry providing drivers with special savings on wellness products and services such as unlimited access to the Stayhealthy HealthCENTER kiosk allowing them to self-monitor health levels.

The Stayhealthy HealthCENTER kiosk offers assessments including measurements of weight, blood pressure, body composition, BMI calculation and basic vision. Other tests such as hearing are being considered.

The HealthCENTERs are Internet enabled, which allows individuals to securely save their results to a HIPAA compliant website that is viewable from any Internet device and can be shared with the professional driver's permission with other health professionals such as physicians, pharmacists or family members through the Rolling Strong Driver Wellness Tool Bag Program.

"Rolling Strong is proud to partner with Stayhealthy," said Bob Perry, "The Trucker Trainer™" and chairman of the American Trucking Association's Safety Management Council's Health & Wellness Working Group and President of Rolling Strong. "Together, Rolling Strong and Stayhealthy are reaching drivers where they work and live, out there on the road. Together, we are giving them the tools they need to stay in front of their health, bringing them home safe to their families."

Stayhealthy recognizes the importance of professional truckers' health in our nation's transportation dependent economy. With more than 3.2 million drivers on the road, decreasing health levels combined with stricter health regulations have resulted in a serious shortage of qualified drivers.

"The Stayhealthy HealthCENTER kiosk is the best in class personal health station available in the market today," Cavotta said. "To effectively change health levels, you must make the process cost effective, accessible and convenient. By deploying self-use health stations across a broad community such as retail stores, YMCAs, hospitals and corporate locations, it empowers individuals to frequently measure their metrics, a key to improving health levels. If you can measure it, you can manage it."
