SAN ANTONIO (July 10, 2014) -- Army Medicine is committed to reaching beneficiaries where they live. The Performance Triad application (v1.0) is now available to do just that.
Members of the U.S. Army Public Health Command, the Performance Triad Team at the Office of the Surgeon General and the Combined Arms Support Center Sustainment Center of Excellence Mobile, or SCoEMobile, team recently released the first version of the Performance Triad app for global distribution. This app provides specific educational resources for squad leaders, Soldiers, spouses, civilians, healthcare workers, pre-retirees, and retirees on how to optimize their performance and enhance their health.
For example, leaders can quickly get information on how to schedule sleep/rest cycles to maximize unit performance during field exercises. The Performance Triad app also provides leaders information about refueling after exercise to maintain performance over sustained operations.
Personal lifestyle choices make a huge impact on health, wellness, and readiness. Sleep, Activity and Nutrition enable Soldiers, their families, and retirees to reach their goals and their full potential.
"Our goal was to provide an easy to use and free tool to assist our Soldiers, families, retirees, and [Department of the Army]-Civilians on optimal ways to enhance their performance, health, and wellness through sleep, activity, and nutrition," said Lt. Col. Mark Mellott, technology lead for the Performance Triad.
The Performance Triad app is available for free. You can download the app for iPhones, iPads, Android devices, and Windows phones by searching for "Performance Triad."
