Jupiter, FL (PRWEB) January 05, 2016
Innovations with Ed Begley Jr. announced today that it will feature SleepSafe Drivers, Inc. in an upcoming episode, airing second quarter 2016 via Discovery Channel. Dates and show times TBA.
SleepSafe Drivers provides fleets and occupations with risk sensitive positions or challenging work schedules with a complete cost effective program for sleep apnea and fatigue management. Viewers will learn about the risks associated with fatigued driving and how through national coverage, the program allows for easy diagnosis and treatment for sleep apnea in a confidential, convenient and cost effective manner. Treating Sleep Apnea in these high risk occupations not only mitigates risk, but increases overall health while decreasing health care costs.
“Untreated, drivers are twice as likely to be forced onto disability due to health problems, and more than twice as likely to have heart attacks and strokes. Successful CPAP treatment "normalizes" those risks, and can cut health costs by about half,” said Dana Voien, CEO of SleepSafe Drivers.
The management team at SleepSafe Drivers has unparalleled experience in home sleep testing with patented technology, high-compliance treatment products and protocols, and a strong network with the nation’s leading sleep labs, sleep physicians, and Durable Medical Equipment (DME) providers.
“We are very excited to share our story with the Innovations viewers. People are starting to understand the importance of sleep and and it’s affect on overall health. It is more important than ever to continue to educate and to provide innovative solutions for employers,” said Dr. Alan Lankford, Ph.D., FAASM and Chief Science Officer of SleepSafe Drivers. "The days of offering a business a turn-key, out of the box program is in the past—customization and personalized coaching for drivers is where we see the results.”
“One trucker—after being on treatment for eight months, losing 110 pounds along with his chronic fatigue— said it best ‘I believe this program literally saved my life,’” recounts Mr. Voien.
“Falling asleep at the wheel can cause death and injury, not only to the driver, but to others on the road. SleepSafe Drivers’ solutions include both portable and comprehensive sleep services with best in class turnaround times and compliance results to ensure the safety of those in risk sensitive positions,” said Sarah McBrayer, Creative Director for the series. “We look forward to educating the public on what they’re doing for the industry.”
