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 and contain a GPS tracking chip connected through Telefónica’s global cellular network that sends location information to the GTX Corp proprietary IoT platform showing the exact location of the individual wearing them.
