LOS ANGELES, CA--(Marketwired - Jun 9, 2016) - GTX Corp (OTC PINK: GTXO), an IoT platform in the personal location GPS wearable and wandering assistive technology business, announced the commercial launch of the GPS SmartSole with Possum Ltd, a B2B Healthcare and Telehealth provider conducting business across the UK and Ireland.
Possum is an independent, privately owned British company which develops, manufactures, supplies, installs and supports Electronic Assistive Technology products and systems to the National Health Service and distributes and supports a wide range of products to the Telehealth and Technology Enabled Care and Support markets. Established in 1961, Possum is a former holder of one of the most prestigious business awards in the UK, the Queen's Award for Enterprise in the Innovation category.
Philip Robinson, Managing Director of Possum, stated, "Deploying new innovative technologies such as the GPS SmartSoles, which can improve health outcomes, increase independence, reduce loneliness and isolation is what we are all about. The GTX team has been wonderful to work with. We signed our Agreement last week, issued a PO right away and they have already shipped us our first order."
Andrew Duncan, GTX Corp Director, stated, "Possum is a major provider of Electronic Assistive Technology and Telehealth products in the UK. Possum has strong relationships in the National Health Service and with local authorities. We are very excited to be working with them to develop this growing market."
"In 2015, it was estimated that there were 850,000 people living with dementia in the UK. As a result of memory, physical and communication challenges, people with dementia may experience social isolation and loneliness. Going for a walk can sometimes be a challenge for them, which can lead to getting lost or disorientated even in familiar surroundings. These distressing experiences can result in reduced activity, increased social isolation and increased caregiver stress, so any form of technology that can support people to get out and move about more safely and confidently, such as the GPS SmartSoles is a significant quality of life improvement. We look forward to working with Possum as their mission and ours are in complete alignment - harness wearable technology to empower people," said Nelson Skip Riddle, GTX UK Healthcare Adviser.
Possum will be exhibiting the GPS SmartSole this week at the Alzheimer's Show in London, which is a two-day event for family caregivers and healthcare professionals who want to learn more about dementia and the available solutions in the market place.
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 who suffer 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 the GTX Corp 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, USA.
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 map plotting the wanderer's location. Alerts can go to local authority and private Call Centres to provide effective monitoring and support also be sent.
