Founded by Dr. Glenn Copeland, Glenco Medical is an injury treatment company providing effective and non-invasive remedies to alleviate musculoskeletal and inflammatory pain using wearable therapeutic technologies. Glenco Medical acts as the exclusive Canadian distributor of CareWear® wearable therapeutics class II low level light therapy device. Glenco Medical has extensive experience and orthopedic knowledge from treating sports injuries and garnering expertise establishing successful clinical operations, therapy protocols and outcome-based practices.
Glenco Medical recently established the COVID-19 Standard for Safe Sport, Industry, School Set and Retail (the “Standard”), through which it is developing and implementing protocols to safely return sports players, businesspeople, students, performers and shoppers to their respective professions and passions.
The Standard was designed by Dr. Glenn Copeland, who also serves, as Director, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Glenco Medical. The Standard comprises medical screening protocols for individual health safety. The screenings will incorporate temperature and symptom checks in addition to serology testing for COVID-19 antibodies.
“Glenco Medical recognized early that there would be a need for comprehensive protocols that will get organizations back to work safely,” said Doug Sommerville, CEO of QuestCap. “Their extensive experience in working with professional sports leagues has built an expertise in the needs and challenges of keeping people healthy in these types of settings. They’ve been able to leverage that expertise to build custom protocols that we both anticipate will mitigate the spread of the virus in other settings where physical distancing is challenging. The investment in Glenco Medical also indicates our interest in companies with promising opportunities beyond the age of COVID-19 and the long-term opportunities stemming from an aging but active population.”
“Getting back to productivity is a top priority for organizations of all types,” said Dr. Glenn Copeland, Chairman and CEO of Glenco Medical Corp. “Where remote working may be the answer for many types of workplaces, there are many where this will be impossible. Our specialized knowledge of the medical and wellness needs of high-performance sports leagues has enabled us to build programs that will be effective in other types of communal workplaces.”
About the Standard
The Standard involves protocols in a multi-phase process that ensures the safety of all participants and that mitigate the potential spread of coronavirus. The Standard is overseen by independent medical administrators and testers, who enforce medical recommendations and public health safety measures. The Standard includes:
- COVID-19 testing and COVID-19 antibody testing for individuals and staff by trained and certified clinicians.
- Self-reporting, identification of those being tested, aggregation of test results and collaboration with governing bodies.
- Self-regulation, by enforcing medical recommendations and measures for recovery with a commitment to players, staff and employees.
- Digital ID verification, authentication and credential management through a digital app, which can then be shared selectively with employers or other parties with a tap of a button or scan of a QR code.
- Contact tracing in order to help identify, educate, and monitor individuals that have come in contact with the virus while minimizing the spread and impact on others.
QuestCap is also pleased to announce a non-brokered private placement offering of units (the “Units”) at a price of $0.20 per Unit for aggregate gross proceeds of up to $3 million (the “Offering”). Each Unit will consist of one common share of the Company and one common share purchase warrant (a “Warrant”).
