GTX GPS SmartSole – 4G Shoe Insert GPS Tracking System for People that Wander

For people living with mental disorders such as Autism, Dementia, and Alzheimer’s, as well as for anyone living with a Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI), there’s a serious potential risk that they’ll end up wandering and become lost. According to the Alzheimer’s Association, 6/10 people with Dementia (including Alzheimer’s disease) will wander at least once, and many will do so repeatedly. A recent study has also shown that it is common for kids with autism (mainly younger children, but also teenagers) to end up wandering because they have a weaker sense of danger than other kids. Lastly, another study has shown that wandering is a well recognized sequelae (i.e. a common occurrence) of patients of Traumatic Brain Injury. Now, for families with a relative that lives with any of these mental disorders, having them wandering not only can place a huge burden and stress on their family, friends, and even neighbors, but can also cause an increased cost of care, and ultimately, increased negative emotions. Moreover, wandering is also one of the least manageable and most emotionally draining behaviors that families and caregivers must address. The best way to ensure that people living with any (or multiple) of these mental disorders don’t end up wandering and ultimately getting lost is by constant remote patient monitoring (RPM). This is exactly what the GTX GPS SmartSole has to offer you.

The GTX GPS SmartSole is a pair of wearable 4G-enabled water-resistant smart shoe inserts designed specifically for people living with mental disorders that can cause them to wander and get lost which work as a high-performance GPS tracking system that’s used together with its GTX Smart Locator App, from which where users can create geozones and circular perimeters around any addresses, ultimately providing families and caregivers with a reliable way of keeping track of their relatives / assigned patients, working across all 50 USA States and Territories in areas of cellular coverage.

Whenever these 4G-enabled GPS-tracking smart shoe inserts enter or exit those pre-configured areas, the company’s online portal will immediately send alerts via email and/or text to family-members and/or caregivers that were previously added within the App’s Settings.

Designed as an innovative wander-prevention solution for people at risk of wandering due to them living with mental disorders, these 4G-enabled GPS-tracking smart shoe inserts not only can help families and caregivers to keep better track of the people they take care of and assist daily so that they can have some peace of mind about their whereabouts, but ultimately, can also  help to prevent patients from being institutionalized, thus reducing the total cost of their daily care.

Now, let’s have a slightly more detailed look at the GTX GPS SmartSole and check out exactly how these 4G-enabled GPS-tracking smart shoe inserts are designed to work, and also talk a little more about their Smartphone Companion App.

DESIGN & SPECS

Starting with the available sizing options for these 4G-enabled GPS-tracking smart shoe inserts, know that the GTX GPS SmartSole are available in three (x3) different trim-to-fit sizes, which are: Small (Kids sizes 3 to 4 / Men sizes 3 to 9.5 / Women sizes 5 to 11.5), Medium (Men sizes 8 to 12 / Women sizes 10 to 14), and Large (just Men sizes 12.5 to 15).

Since those three (x3) different available sizing options are designed as trim-to-fit sizes, you can easily trim a pair of GTX GPS SmartSole with a pair of scissors to make them perfectly fit your loved one’s / patient’s shoes.

Regarding their design, the GTX GPS SmartSole also feature a very simple and minimalist design, which allows them to look perfectly discreet.

Then, in terms of their construction, you’ll also be happy to know that GTX GPS SmartSole shoe inserts are also manufactured with a user’s comfort in mind.

The top-side of these shoe inserts is made of a high-quality microcell anti-friction fabric, which makes them quite soft in order to ensure the best possible comfort for a user’s feet, while their bottom-side is made of a high-quality polyurethane material that helps to reduce the pressure made onto the bottom-side of a user’s feet, allowing them to walk in great comfort with pretty much any pair of shoes on any type of flooring / ground / terrain (whether that’s wooden flooring, concrete flooring, gravel terrain when going for a walk in the park, etc.).

Best of all, the GTX GPS SmartSole shoe inserts are also rated to be water-resistant, meaning that if the person who’s wearing them is using them on a rainy day, there’s no reason to worry about the shoe inserts getting soaked with water.

CONNECTIVITY

For their GPS-tracking capabilities, each GTX GPS SmartSole shoe insert comes equipped with a built-in GPS-Tracking chip that’s powered by 4G Connectivity, for which the shoe inserts GPS Tracking functions will work across all 50 USA States and Territories in areas of cellular coverage.

This is what ultimately allows each pair of GTX GPS SmartSole shoe inserts to send GPS signals in order to communicate with the MetAlert Monitoring Portal (requires a paid subscription plan), which is the company’s dedicated GPS-based Monitoring Service, from which any potential wandering alerts are sent back to a user’s family members and/or caretakers via the GTX Smart Locator App, which display the wearer’s location in real time.

BATTERY & BATTERY LIFE

For their power, each GTX GPS SmartSole shoe insert comes equipped with a built-in 660 mAh (3.7 V) Lithium-Polymer rechargeable battery that can offer between 24 hours to 96 hours of battery life, depending on how regularly you track the wearer’s location.

If you’re looking to save on battery-life, note that the GTX GPS SmartSole shoe insert can be set to work in a Motion Sense Sleep Mode, which is basically a Battery Saving Mode. This is best for times when the user is currently at their place of residence while accompanied by other family members or by their caregiver.

When it comes to recharging the battery-levels of each shoe insert, know that the GTX GPS SmartSole shoe inserts also boast Wireless Charging capabilities, for which each pair of GTX GPS SmartSole comes together with a Wireless Charging Pad (powered by a 60″ Power Cable) that allows users to conveniently recharge the battery of their GTX GPS SmartSole pair by simply placing each shoe inserts over their dedicated Wireless Charger.

It takes around 2 to 4 hours of time to recharge each shoe insert, so keep that in mind.

THE SMARTPHONE COMPANION APP – The GTX Smart Locator App

To be able to check the wearer’s current location as well as receive those potential wandering alerts, all that users (meaning other family members and / or caregivers) have to do is to download the GTX Smart Locator App, which is available to download for free for both iOS and Android devices.

WHAT’S IN THE BOX?
