CheckUps Medical To Offer Affordable Medical Check ups To Blue Collar Workers


Kenya-based CheckUps Medical has innovated a fully digitized mobile equipment in a bid to offer affordable medical Check ups to Blue collar workers. The mobile clinic was featured at the Jamhuri Innovation Summit at KICC and was among the innovations visited by H. E. President William Ruto.

The mobile clinic is equipped with a digital X-ray, digital lab equipment, ECG, ultrasound and more equipment which are connected to a centralized coordinating team of experts. The remote care model allows quality services to be offered at 30% of typical costs. The innovation will promote a future for blue collar workers powered by wellness.

The CEO of CheckUps, Dr Moka Lantum, thanked the government for the recognition and urge to take the mobile clinic to schools, farms, markets and industrial parks to serve blue collar workers. Farmers need to be checked for respiratory disease. Traders need to be checked for chronic diseases. Industrial workers need to be screened for hearing, vision and chronic disease. Children need to be checked for vision, hearing and developmental delays.

The public will be able to pay for the affordable Wellness checks using a membership cover which allows medicines and tests to be brought to their homes and workplaces. Traders loose money when they close to visit a clinic. This innovation prevents that. Pupils loose valuable lessons when away from school. Industrial workers will not have to be afraid of lost wages as services will be a phone call away. Farmers can be served in the farm and not incur losses. The impact of an affordable cover that brings services to where they earn a living is transformational.
