Centro Médico Teknon equipped with cutting-edge technology to treat BWR sailors
Centro Médico Teknon, as the medical care provider for the Barcelona World Race, is responsible for organising and administering 24-hour medical care for sailors during the competition, a comprehensive service delivered using the very latest communication technology and high-resolution video conferencing.
Barcelona World Race is one of the toughest and most demanding sailing competitions in the world, with double-handed teams racing non-stop over 25,000 nautical miles in three months. During this time the crew members will have access to first-class health care provided by the Centro Médico Teknon Emergency Service, with a professional staff of more than twenty working 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. According to Dr. Bonet, Director of the Teknon Emergency Service, for the first time in history the competing sailors will be able to consult the emergency medical team via high-resolution video conference, meaning they will be better positioned to examine any incidents which may occur while at sea.
