Getting lost is a common problem for Alzheimer’s patients and their caretakers. They often forget the way when going out on walks and can’t remember how to get home. In this context, location-based technologies are an helpful way to keep track of patients.

GTX Corp has developed the  GPS Shoe, a pair of sneakers embedded with GPS technology that allow caregivers to track patients via a computer or smartphone.
