SPONSOR: ClipperTelemed+, a new joint venture between Clipper Ventures and PRAXES Medical Group, is Team Sponsor in the 2015-16 edition of the Clipper Round the World Yacht Race.

The branded entry will be one of twelve identical 70ft ocean racing yachts that comprise the Clipper Race fleet.

The tenth edition of the biennial event provides the perfect global marketing platform to showcase the new service, which is powered by the PRAXES remote medical support team and will be provided to more than 600 crew on the race.

“Clipper Ventures operates a powerful global marketing tool in the Clipper Race that is used by major international brands and destinations to promote themselves around the world,” said Tom Bettle, business development manager, ClipperTelemed+.

“The fact that PRAXES supports hundreds of skippers and crew on the race provides a floating case study of the telemedicine service in action. This is the perfect way to launch ClipperTelemed+ world-wide,” he added.

ClipperTelemed+ provides fast emergency and general medical support from PRAXES physicians based in Canada. The service, for crew on yachts, superyachts, commercial ships and exploration rigs, uses the latest telecommunications technologies to provide access to fully qualified emergency physicians within five minutes, wherever the casualty is located, in any language.

In addition, ClipperTelemed+ will also provide custom medical kits and equipment as part of a complete remote marine medical support service which will be officially launched in April.
