Every few weeks, I’ll see a Silver Alert news story about an Alzheimers patient or otherwise vulnerable adult who has wandered away. That’s just in my area, so imagine how many of these at-risk people there are in the country and how many of them could be missing at any given time. GTX has developed shoes that have a GPS locator inside that can be used to track your loved one if he/she is missing. The locator and power supply are hidden in the shoes and have comfortable padding over them. You won’t have to worry the patient will remove the locator like they could a bracelet or necklace device. Use the Breadcrumbs or Geo-Fencing applications to monitor their location on the internet or on a smartphone. The shoes are available in a variety of styles. They should cost about $300, and they should be available soon. Go to the GTX website for more details.
