GPS Pilot Makes National News Across Canada

CTV National News: Avis Favaro reports on the technology being tested to help people with Alzheimer’s and dementia.

Can GPS technology help dementia sufferers stay independent longer? From the article:

Of the 40 families in the study so far, three-quarters say the technology works

Each year, dozens of patients across Canada suffering from Alzheimer’s and dementia go missing. For some, it can lead to death if they’re not located soon enough.

In an effort to prevent such tragedies, some dementia sufferers are institutionalized.

Trial researchers are hoping the GPS technology will help keep the growing number of dementia patients safe in their own homes, and thus prolong independent living.

Some of the devices being tested include a watch with two-way communication and a shoe insole with GPS that will give a patient’s exact location.

Researcher Lili Liu says three out of five dementia sufferers will experience some form of wandering.

“We need to allow them the freedom to walk … but to do it with as little risk as possible,” Liu told CTV News.

Of the 40 families in the study so far, three-quarters say the technology works.

Tim said it’s been beneficial to both him and Allison.

November is National Alzheimer’s Awareness Month

In 1983, President Ronald Reagan designated November as National Alzheimer’s Awareness Month stating, “The fight against Alzheimer’s disease needs many allies. I salute the many Americans who are working for increased public awareness of this baffling disorder and the scientists whose research holds the promise of hope.”

A little over ten years later he would announce his own affliction with Alzheimer’s and note, “Unfortunately, as Alzheimer’s disease progresses, the family often bears a heavy burden.”

November is also Family Caregivers Month, helping to shine a light on the amazing efforts more than 65 million Americans provide every year as unpaid caregivers.

In recognition and support of this work , we at GTX Corp invite you to join us in taking the next 4 weeks to spread the word and help raise awareness for Alzheimer’s and Family Caregivers.

GTX Corp Announces Starting Commercial Production of GPS SmartSoles

Initial Q1 2015 Delivery of SmartSoles Already Sold Out

 

LOS ANGELES, CALIFORNIA – OCTOBER 30, 2014 – GTX Corp. (OTCBB: GTXO), a pioneer and global provider of personal location wearable technologies, is pleased to announce that it has officially entered the volume production cycle for its GPS SmartSoles, with expected first delivery in late December. The GPS SmartSoles are being manufactured in partnership with Atlantic Footcare, Inc., a leading designer and manufacturer of orthotic insoles for over 20 years and strategic partner of the Company.

“We have hit a true tipping point with this initial production run of our patented GPS SmartSoles,” commented Patrick Bertagna, CEO of GTX Corp.  “All of the units in the first delivery are already spoken for with our current backlog and demand, from high profile pilot programs to actual orders we have received in the recent months. Shipping these units in the field starts to build upon our channel partner pipeline and recurring revenue base of installed units, and more importantly allows us to start shipping production units to our potential large accounts transitioning out of their pilots into a commercial status. We have put into production a 4 month rolling forecast expecting delivery of the first units to arrive and be deployed by late Q4 2014 throughout Q1 2015.”

“We have been extremely pleased from the high quality standards implemented by our manufacturing partners, which use the highest quality and most advanced GPS and Cellular electronics, designed and assembled in Germany, before being manufactured into insoles in Rhode island”, commented Andrew Duncan, Director at GTX and Head of Product and Business Development . “Our decade plus experience in the wearable GPS market and close ties and heritage to the technology and footwear industry have allowed us to develop, patent, manufacture and bring to market a state of the art product, garnering worldwide attention, in a short period of time.”

The GPS SmartSole features a miniaturized GPS and cellular tracking chip embedded in a comfortable, cut to fit, water resistant insole, providing the ability to track persons of interest remotely from any computer, tablet or smartphone.  The GPS SmartSole is powered by an inductive charging rechargeable battery that lasts 3-5 days on a single charge.

“The interest and demand for our GPS and BLE SmartSole products increases every week,” continued Mr. Bertagna. “From the media buzz to assisted living facilities, police departments, security agencies and caregivers of those afflicted with Alzheimer’s, Autism and TBI are stepping up to be the first users of the SmartSoles. The recent current events have also sparked interest from the UN to track health workers in West Africa along with support staff and journalists in the Middle East. This is truly exciting times for GTX and we are ready to commercially bring this product to market.”

GTX Corp/CEO Comments on NY Senator Chuck Schumer’s Proposed Funding for Tracking Devices for Autistic Children

 

GTX Products Ideally Positioned to Provide Total Solution for Autistic Children

Los Angeles, Calif. – February 5, 2014 – GTX Corp. (OTCQB: GTXO) Chief Executive Officer, Patrick Bertagna, commented on the proposed legislation brought by New York Senator Chuck Schumer related to GPS tracking devices for autistic children.  GTX Corp. is a leading provider of personal location services and wearable technologies, including a patented GPS shoe for individuals afflicted with Alzheimer’s at risk of wandering.  The shoe was recognized in an exhibit of the “Top 100 Inventions in History” by the National Museum of Science and Technology in Stockholm, Sweden in 2012.  The Company is currently piloting a “GPS SmartSole” insert, which can be used in virtually any shoe, including those of children.

“All of us at GTX applaud Senator Schumer’s ‘Avonte’s Law’ proposal to provide funding for tracking technologies for autistic children,” remarked Mr. Bertagna. “The story of Avonte Oquendo (a 14-year autistic boy who wandered from his Queens, NY school in October, and whose body was found more than 3 months later) highlights the need for technologies that can locate and provide the safe return of those at risk of wandering within minutes, versus the hours, weeks, or even months that most often ends in tragedy.  These same technologies can also reduce or even eliminate the need for massive rescue operations like those seen in the search for Avonte, and which threaten to strain public resources due to the increase in aging and special needs populations in the years ahead.”

While GPS technologies can be provided in a number of formats, confusion and paranoia are among the primary manifestations of at risk populations, resulting in a need for technologies that are inconspicuous to the user.

 

“We know that individuals with cognitive deficits tend to remove items placed upon them with which they are unfamiliar and/or they view as a stigma issue,” states Andrew Carle, an internationally recognized expert on assistive technologies and an advisor to GTX.  “Worse, locking such devices in place can cause significant emotional distress to those with paranoia, including harming themselves in an attempt to remove the technology.  Placing GPS tracking in an insole, shoe or other discreet wearable maximizes the odds it will be in place when needed, without compromising dignity or exacerbating confusion or fear.” In addition to shoes and insoles, GTX also incorporates its GPS tracking technology in backpacks carried by children to school.

 

“Coupled with our unique form factor, our tracking software platform has been used in the market for several years for tracking people and high value items, with proven results,” says Bertagna.  “Through features such as ‘geofencing’, caregivers can easily program multiple perimeters, which when breached can provide automatic text or email alerts letting them know their loved one not only left a designated perimeter (home, school, or other location), but also where they actually are by providing a current Google map location. This tracking continues even if the wearer is in motion – walking, running, or even in a moving vehicle.”

 

“We wish Senator Schumer and his team the best in progressing their legislation, and GTX stands ready to support the cause with our wearable technology tracking solutions.”
