Nomad converts its operations to provide medical supplies

Taking advantage of its supply chain to quickly move supplies to frontline responders anywhere in the world

In response to the sudden and unprecedented demand for medical supplies, mobile accessory maker Nomad has reprioritized its operations to provide medical supplies, like PPE face masks, to those fighting the rapid spread of COVID-19.

Instead of smartphone cases and other accessories, Nomad’s manufacturing partners and suppliers in China have converted production to medical supplies. The company recognizes that the single best thing they can do to help flatten the curve is assist in the distribution of much-needed supplies around the world to aid nurses, doctors, and first responders.

Nomad’s founders say its phone case supplier has already switched from making bags and wallets to surgical masks for the Chinese medical system. “But, as the disease slows in China, they now have excess capacity and a desire to help others who may be in short supply.”

Nomad, who operates a warehouse in Hong Kong where effective prevention measures halted the spread of the virus early, is able to quickly move medical supplies to frontline responders globally.

The California-based brand says it’s taking advantage of its supply chain that’s able to fulfill thousands of orders around the world each week. They can ship masks and other needed medical supplies anywhere in the world in two-three days’ time.

As it works to streamline its production, Nomad is pricing the medical supplies they’re producing to cover their costs. Any profit from the operation will be donated to fight against COVID-19.

With the new year just around the corner, a lot of people are bound to promise themselves a healthier 2023. However, a gym isn’t the most welcoming place for a newbie, especially those who don’t know what to do yet. If you’re struggling to start your 2023 right, Netflix is launching a library of fitness content from Nike before the current year ends.

Today, Netflix officially announced that Nike Training Club will release some of its videos on the streaming platform. Eventually totaling 30 hours of content, the library will teach both beginners and experienced users across a range of interests in the workout sphere.

Launching in two batches, the Nike Training Club will release its first batch on December 30. The first batch will include a total of 46 episodes spread throughout different series. These include Kickstart Fitness with the Basics, Two Weeks to a Stronger Core, Fall in Love with Vinyasa Yoga, HIT & Strength with Tara, and Feel-Good Fitness. Oh, and if you don’t have a gym or any equipment, you can still do some workouts on your own.

Currently, Netflix does not have a timeframe for the rest of the library. However, the platform promises more sometime in 2023. If you can’t wait, Nike Training Club also offers more content on its own app outside of Netflix.
