Currently testing new 3G platforms in the U.S. and Europe to embed electronics in several different form factors suitable for all ages, from young children to adults to mobile assets
LOS ANGELES, CALIFORNIA – March 14, 2018 –GTX Corp (OTC: GTXO), an IoT platform and global provider of personal location GPS, BLE, cellular and RFID, tracking and monitoring wearable and wandering assistive technology announced today that it is finalizing testing and preparing to launch a new suite of devices and form factors in order to expand market reach. Over the next few months GTX Corp will be launching GPS SmartSole® for pre-teens, the Invisabelt for young children, an OEM version ready to be embedded in customized form factors designed for mobile asset tracking, a weapons tracking device and Smart Step™ insoles designed to monitor activity, mobility and balance.
Patrick Bertagna, GTX Corp CEO, commented, “We have been evaluating different market segments, looking at different opportunities that we can leverage our core GPS tracking expertise, wearable technology platform, intellectual property portfolio and Made in USA manufacturing capabilities. As part of this initiative, we are working with our channels partners to introduce new products for both existing and new markets, including tracking solutions for kids, providing customized hardware for enterprise mobile assets, developing new products for military & law enforcement and with our partner Veristride, we have begun testing a new line of health & wellness insoles created specifically for the general baby boomer population.”
Andrew Duncan, GTX Corp President of business development stated, “Our experience and knowledge in miniaturizing technology in the wearable space is allowing us to expand beyond just tracking seniors with Alzheimer’s. We are now looking at the kids market, predictive and preventive market and a host of enterprise applications. Our expansion into the health and wellness market by simply and accurately monitoring how someone walks is especially exciting. We will be able to predict when a person might be susceptible to a fall, which is an area of vital importance in the overall senior care industry and with fall risk injuries accounting for over $31 billion in the U.S. annually, we believe this this is a far larger market for us to explore. Of course the kids market could also be very significant.”
“We are very pleased to be working with GTX to launch their first generation GPS tracking products for children in the U.K,” said Phil Iles, Sales Manager for Possum LTD, the U.K. distributor for GTX Corp. “We have received strong interest from caregivers looking after young children with Learning Disabilities like Autism since the introduction of the GPS SmartSole and already have many young adolescent customers using the product. The introduction of a children’s size GPS SmartSole allows us to broaden our reach and fulfill pent up demand”.
“We look forward to supporting the launch of this new range of GTX health and safety related products in Scandinavia.” commented Tommy Rasmussen, Managing Director of SafeCall Denmark ApS, “We strongly believe that the introduction of children’s tracking products as well as insoles with bio-sensors allowing the monitoring of a person’s health, whatever their age will allow us to continue to grow and diversify business opportunities in the region.”
