GTX Corp's patented GPS SmartSoles®, which were featured in AARP's 2015 technology gear guide are a stigma free, safety and security unobtrusive monitoring and tracking solution for those afflicted from Alzheimer's, dementia, autism, TBI and other memory disorders and have a tendency to wander. They are placed in the wearer's shoes and contain a miniaturized GPS tracking chip connected through a cellular network that sends a signal to a monitoring portal or app, showing the exact location of the individual wearing the SmartSoles. They come in several trim to fit sizes for both men and women, are water resistant, made with the highest quality electronic components and assembled in Rhode Island, U.S.A.
The simplicity behind the SmartSole Platform is that when someone wanders off or becomes lost, a text or email alert is sent to a caregiver's phone and computer with a direct link to a Google map plotting the wanderer's location. Alerts can be directed to a local authority and/or a private Call Centre to provide continuous monitoring and support.
Currently Alzheimer's and dementia impacts over 6 million people in the U.S. with predictions of 16 million by the year 2050. Alzheimer's is such a demanding condition, that it often impairs the health of those caring for the victims. Nearly 10 million caregivers, mostly family members, spend $148 billion dollars year for the care of their loved ones.
