Los Angeles, CA / ACCESSWIRE / March 6, 2014 / GTX Corp (GTXO), a leading provider of personal location wearable technologies, is pleased to announce the introduction of its new Bluetooth Low Energy (“BLE”) SmartSoles, a footwear system design to simply monitor when the wearer enters or leaves a room or a building and created for people afflicted with Alzheimer’s, dementia or Autism who are prone to wandering. The Company has been in development of this product for over 6 months and plans to commence shipments of its BLE SmartSoles in early Q2 2014.
New Wearable BLE Technology Expands Product Suite and Market

Our BLE SmartSoles were specifically designed based on the needs of and feedback from assisted living facilities and the care giving community in the US and overseas. The BLE SmartSoles provide a simple entry point to our products, and offers an easy upgrade path to our GPS SmartSoles for those chronic wonderers.”
The BLE SmartSoles look and feel like regular insoles and may be placed in most shoes and trimmed for fit. Embedded inside the BLE SmartSoles is a miniaturized Bluetooth low energy chip that reports when a wearer enters or leaves a pre set area such as a room or a building. The technology is customizable for personal home use or commercial assisted living facilities. The caregiver is alerted via email or text when the wearer leaves the area and can download the free Smart Locator mobile app compatible with Android and Apple devices. The BLE SmartSoles will cost under $50 and come with a battery life of over a year, allowing care givers to monitor their loved ones without the need to worry about recharging or replacing batteries.
