Los Angeles, August 7, 2013 - GTX Corp (OTCBB: GTXO), a leader in customizable, patented 2-way GPS solutions and Atlantic Footcare (AF), recently signed a manufacturing and distribution agreement to develop and launch GPS embedded insoles. Atlantic Footcare, headquartered in Rhode Island has been a leading designer and manufacturer of insoles for over twenty years and supplies many of the major athletic and shoe companies, national retail chains and the U.S military with high quality and comfort insoles. Under the agreement Atlantic Footcare will be making an investment of $200,000 to advance the development of the new GPS SmartSoles.
“This relationship and investment with GTX is a great opportunity to couple technology with an insole, enabling us to produce a truly innovative and cost effective solution to meet today’s growing personal tracking needs. We are very excited at the opportunity to be at the forefront of wearable GPS tracking technology,” said Charlie Sipes Atlantic Footcare President.
With over a year in development, GTX Corp had been researching ways to further miniaturize its GPS module in order to penetrate new markets and expand current ones. “Compared to our existing module, this next gen is approximately 30% smaller, thinner and lighter, 20% less expensive and has 200% more battery life. It is equipped with a motion sensor and advanced A-GPS technology for pin point accuracy and rapid time to first fix (TTFF)” states GTX Corp CEO Patrick Bertagna. “The opportunity to partner with Atlantic Footcare opened up and with this latest next generation device, embedding the module inside an insole was a natural next step.”
AF already has ongoing experience in embedding electronics inside insoles through other partnerships and alliances and has already completed the first prototypes of the GPS SmartSoles™ currently undergoing testing. The Company plans to announce by the end of the month some of the partners that will be involved with marketing and distribution.
