NFL Alumni Teams Up With Waypoint MSC LLC
MOUNT LAUREL, NJ (December 8, 2021) – The National Football League Alumni Association (NFLA), the largest and oldest association of former National Football League players, has partnered with Waypoint MCS LLC and Faithful Inc to promote ProSafeBand to scholastic athletic programs and football teams nationwide.
ProSafeBand is a ruggedized, hypoallergenic, affordable, battery-operated monitoring wearable device developed to analyze the wearer’s temperature. Using a medically-certified thermometer, the innovative device helps successfully manage dehydration and overheating in players using a smart traffic light system.
ProSafeBand Bluetooth option can securely share individual players temperature and heartrate with an authorized point of contact to help manage the welfare of the players. ProSafeBand Bluetooth also helps in the fight against COVID-19 by spotting temperature and heart rate spikes. The technology also has inbuilt privacy-preserving contact tracing tools.
Both bands enable students and players to participate more safely in athletic programs at their schools. This inexpensive band, used in conjunction with testing, will enable a return to school athletic programs and help former professional football players and the general public live in safer environments.
“We are extremely excited about the opportunity to partner with the NFLA and its affiliates to provide an environment whereby the public can feel confident in returning to everyday activities and special events like sports or concerts or gatherings of any size. And we look forward to supporting the dual mission of the NFLA for children and former athletes.” ProSafeBand CEO, David Ryan said.
Brian T McConnell, a Vice President of the NFLA’s Northern California Chapter and President of Faithful Inc. said “We have extensively evaluated the ProSafeBand product under the conditions of college athletic programs and are pleased with its performance, comfort and durability utilized in full-contact athletic sports. This unique and inexpensive product will be a game-changer in youth and scholastic sports, in particular during the challenging conditions of COVID-19.
Beasley Reece, CEO of NFL Alumni Association said “We are delighted to be associated with the ProSafeBand product. It will be very useful for many athletic programs and its performance, comfort and durability will enable scholastic athletes to return to sports with increased safety during the COVID-19 epidemic by providing real-time continuous temperature monitoring and contact tracing”.
