Top 8 Health Apps for Owner-Operators

FMCSA Medical regulations require certain health standards to be met to get and keep a commercial driver’s license. These regulations include health of body, mind, and alertness.


Owner-operator Working Out Using a Health App

When you’re on the road, it’s helpful to have tools right at your fingertips that can help you stay healthy and make good choices.


Being healthy isn’t just about what you eat, or how much you move - it’s about whole body wellness! At ATBS, we compiled a list of 8 get-healthy apps that address everything from sleep to memory strength and mental health.

Lumosity

Train your brain by developing memory and attention with Lumosity. This app was developed by scientists who studied common neuropsychological tasks and then transformed them into fun and challenging games.


In layman’s terms: Play games. Get smarter.


This app is used by over 50 million people worldwide and creates a personalized training program to challenge your brain.

Sleep Cycle

Waking up to an alarm clock that jolts you awake from deep sleep will make you grumpy the rest of the day. Sleep Cycle tracks your movements as you sleep – gauging when you transition between light sleep and deep sleep. The alarm clock will wake you when your phone determines you’re in your lightest sleep cycle during a preset 30-minute wake-up window.

PTSD Coach

This app is specially tailored for veterans and service members to help PTSD sufferers gain control over their anger or stress. Just hit the “manage my stress” button, input what’s wrong, and level of distress on a 0-10 scale. It’s designed to respond with something to help you through that moment – whether with a relaxation exercise, music, or positive images.


Glooko

If you have diabetes, this app is for you! Glooko makes diabetes management easier, by taking data from your meter to help monitor your glucose levels. It also enables you to share readings with your healthcare provider.


Stay Quit Coach

Nothing will move you more quickly towards health than taking the step to quitting smoking. No matter how many times you’ve tried, it’s worth the effort! This app can help you keep your cravings in check and helps tailor a personal success plan in giving up cigarettes. With constant support and inspirational messages, this will help you kick that habit for good!

Calm

Whether you have 60 seconds or 60 minutes, Calm can help you build a habit of mindfulness. Immerse yourself in Calm's soothing music and sounds made for sleep, focus, and relaxation.

Fooducate

People are always saying to make healthier choices, but the nutritional information on food labels isn’t exactly the easiest thing to read and understand. This app lets you scan the barcode of a product or type in its name (or a kind of food, like “apple”) to uncover its total calories, fat, sodium, and other ingredients. It even scores the food for healthiness!


This is also a great tool to find unhealthy foods amongst those claiming to be healthy, as sometimes the seemingly “good foods” can be packed with unwanted calories.

Rolling Strong

This app is specially designed for the health and wellness for professional drivers around the United States. It accesses your health database on the road to find important clinic locations, health check stations, and coaching sessions. It includes wellness newsletters, special events, and even a built-in pedometer!
