LOS ANGELES, CALIFORNIA – August 2, 2017 – GTX Corp (OTCBB: GTXO), an IoT platform in the personal location wearable and wandering assistive technology business, and its U.K. distributor, Possum, have been awarded with a 4 star product rating for the patented GPS SmartSole® by the U.K.’s favorite disability lifestyle publication, Able Magazine, making it the Company’s third internationally recognized award received in just the past month.
Able Magazine reviews the best products in the marketplace in order to give disabled people a bench mark to look for as they purchase new disability specific equipment and assistive technology. Products are rigorously tested in four areas and given an overall score based on how they were judged regarding the following criteria: how well the product is made and how user friendly it is, if it looks good, how innovative it is and if it represents good value for money.
Editor of Able Magazine, Tom Jamison, commented, “We take great care to see things from the disabled person’s point of view. It’s not just about how well a product works, it’s about ‘can I live with it?’ ‘Does it look good?’ Great products bring together form and function, be it a new car or a simple gadget to make life that little bit easier. It’s great when we see a cracking product like the GPS SmartSole that will genuinely help a disabled person in their day-to-day life.”
Able Magazine has been writing about disability issues and the best in disability products for over 20 years and has developed a trusted voice within the disability community. Gaining a star rating means that the product will be showcased in the publication and in front of a readership of disabled people and their caretakers who want to make informed choices regarding their purchases.
Phil Iles, Sales Manager U.K. & Eire for Possum, stated, “The reception of the GPS SmartSole has been very favorable amongst caregivers and physio therapists looking after those with cognitive disorders like Alzheimer’s and dementia. This award is a great honor and a significant step forward in the process of building product awareness and acceptance in the marketplace.”
“We are truly honored to have received such a prestigious award from Able Magazine which is such a recognized authority in the area of disability care,” commented Andrew Duncan, President of Business Development at GTX Corp. “We appreciate the recognition this brings to our innovative product line of smart wearable technology.”
