Initially created as a wander guard recovery solution for those at risk of wandering due to Alzheimer’s, dementia, autism or traumatic brain injury, the patented GPS SmartSoles are a non-visible GPS and cellular tracking device designed to monitor the location and whereabouts of people afflicted with cognitive memory disorders who have a tendency to wander, become lost and disoriented. They can also be used by people at risk of kidnapping, such as government employees and corporate executives. The SmartSoles are a stigma free, safety and security wearable technology solution placed in the wearer’s shoes that contain a GPS tracking chip connected through Telefonica’s global cellular network that sends location information to the GTX Corp proprietary IoT platform showing the exact location of the individual wearing them. They come in several trim to fit sizes for both men and women, are water resistant, made with the highest quality German electronic components and assembled in Rhode Island, U.S.A.
