LOS ANGELES, CA and MINNEAPOLIS, MN – July 30, 2014 – GTX Corp (OTCQB: GTXO), a leading global provider of personal location wearable technologies, and The Brewer Group, Inc. (TBG), a diversified global investment advisory firm, announced today a renewal of their long-term partnership agreement to maximize GTX’s brand and market awareness in an effort to increase sales channels and expand the company’s global reach. Continued efforts will include further promotion of GTX’s cutting edge GPS SmartSoles product line surrounding the upcoming official product launch and its inclusion in TBG’s Coalition for Concussion Treatment (#C4CT) campaign held at the United Nations.
The #C4CT Concussion Awareness Summit is being convened at the U.N. to explore the potential link between TBI and Alzheimer’s disease. GTX management will join a diverse working group of clinicians, medical researchers, policy makers, international diplomats, athletes, celebrities, and philanthropic organizations to raise awareness, advance clinical research, and develop public policy in order to address this major unmet medical need and public health issue.
In particular, GTX’s association with the #C4CT movement has brought GTX technologies to the attention of victims of traumatic brain injury (TBI) and/or Alzheimer’s disease, members of professional sports leagues, public and private corporations and international organizations focusing on health and wellness. Since February 2013, The Brewer Group has provided ongoing business development and marketing support as well as successfully utilized its extensive network to allow GTX to identify, attract and ally with like-minded companies and organizations, enhancing global exposure of GTX’s groundbreaking products.
GTX Corp CEO, Chairman and founder Patrick Bertagna along with Professor Andy Carle and other GTX team members will be attending the upcoming #C4CT Alzheimer’s Concussion Awareness Summit on July 31st at the United Nations in New York City where they will have the opportunity to showcase their products and demonstrate how they can play an effective role in providing solutions for those suffering from TBI and/or Alzheimer’s disease in front of a diverse audience. Mr. Bertagna and The Brewer Group will also spend the week meeting with investors and potential strategic partners to discuss the further distribution of GTX products across the globe.
“Alzheimer’s is a growing global concern affecting more than 35 million people today and expecting to reach 277 million by 2050. The annual cost in dealing with this has just crossed $1 trillion and we can’t think of a better venue than the United Nations to address this challenge head on. We are honored to be part of the #C4CT Alzheimer’s Concussion Awareness Summit and I want to personally thank Jack Brewer for his passion and dedication and we look forward to many more years of working together,” stated GTX Corp CEO, Chairman and founder Patrick Bertagna.
GTX Corp has been a pioneer in wearable technology for over a decade, empowering the global community and helping keep people connected to who and what matters most. The GTX product line has evolved to bring the highly-adaptable GPS SmartSole™ shoe inserts to prominence, as featured in major international media outlets including an up-coming Business Journals article highlighting the value utilizing wearable technology in managing the debilitating effects of dementia. The Company’s flagship GPS and BLE SmartSoles are the next generation—version 2.0—of the earlier GPS Smart Shoe and allow caregivers to pinpoint individuals instantly, no matter where they are, via on-demand location updates and immediate notifications to any PC, smartphone or tablet.
“We are thrilled to extend our relationship with GTX Corp as we remain fully dedicated not only to promote their patented GPS wearable tech products, but also to help address the critical need of providing innovative safety and security solutions to individuals and loved ones worldwide, including the unfortunately growing number of our population suffering from the lasting effects of cognitive memory disorders such as Alzheimer’s and TBI,” commented The Brewer Group CEO, H.E. Ambassador Jack Brewer. “We consider this partnership the continuation of many exciting, influential collaborative efforts ahead in our ongoing quest to help people around the globe stay connected to those who matter most.”
