Siphiwe Baleka Digital Tech Keeps Truck Drivers Healthy

Digital Health Awardee

Truck driver fitness expert Siphiwe Baleka used to be a truck driver. His experience with driving a truck and trying to stay fit is what drove him to come up with a digital health fitness program for truckers. He gained 15 pounds in the first few months driving and he knew that was no good. National statistics say that 86% of truck drivers are overweight and 57% of them are obese. These over-the-road drivers are in great need of ways to get their health and fitness back under control. Siphiwe came up with a solution for his employer, New Prime Trucking.

In his digital health solution, Siphiwe used digital communication over mobile devices to help the drivers track their health and fitness while giving them information on small, incremental changes that offer them the ability to change their lives. The American Medical Association declared obesity a disease earlier this year meaning that these truck drivers need treatment for their disease to get healthy again. This program has made such an impact that Siphiwe and Prime Trucking won a EveryDayHealth.com Digital Health Award as Healthiest Company for their program that allowed their drivers to lose more than 25 pounds on average.

Monday, January 27th, 2014

LenmarLenmar is known for their Undead Power batteries for mobile devices. Now they have come out with a new battery for 13 inch Macbook Pros and the Macbook Air laptop computers. The Chug Plug is a battery specifically designed to connect to the snap-together computer power supply plugs in Apple Macbook laptops. Jenny Simpson from Lenmar Enterprises joins Tech Podcast Network hosts Chris Montera, the Geekymedic and Jamie Davis, the Podmedic to tell them about this new battery technology.

The Chug Plug will give an additional 4 hours or so to your laptop’s battery life so that when you’re on the go, you don’t have to go without your laptop because of a dying battery. The Chug Plug is a “Smart Battery” which means that it can pass through charge when plugged into the wall and if the wall doesn’t provide enough power for some reason, the Chug Plug will use battery power to supplement AC, if needed.

You can check out the Chug Plug for yourself when if comes out this March for the 45 Watt and 60 Watt MacBooks for about $159.00.

Kyle Kirkpatrick from Decibullz.com joined Jamie Davis, the Podmedic and Chris Montera, the Geekymedic on their Tech Podcast Network LIVE coverage from the International CES conference in Las Vegas. On the final day, Jamie and Chris were excited to check out the custom-molded in-ear earbuds from Decibullz. You mold them and create them at home using your microwave oven.

The brand new Decibullz Contour earbuds are turning heads, literally, at CES 2014. This is the newest version of their popular earphone. This new earphone is the best earphone they have ever created, with better sound, better seal, and better fit. Plus, they are even easier to mold! This new design makes it easier than ever for users to create a perfect fitting and great sounding earphone. The team at Decibullz has combined their customized molding material with a specially selected silicone tip. The soft tip aligns the earphone in the ear canal and creates a comfortable sound-isolating seal. The tip works in conjunction with the molding material that conforms to the concha (bowl part of the ear) to keep the earphone secure and comfortable.

The Contour Earbuds from Decibullz.com are available in March. You can pre-order them for a cost of $49.00. Pick up your own custom molded earbuds now!
