New GPS Shoe for Seniors Available Online Now at Aetrex.com - Caregivers Can Now Track, Locate, and Recover Seniors Using GPS Shoes.

From Omnilink, GTX Corp and Aetrex, the GPS Shoe for senior men and women with Alzheimer's, dementia, and memory loss is now available for online purchase at www.aetrex.com/gps

The GPS Shoe is available in standard sizes, with velcro straps or shoe laces, and costs $299.99 for the shoe and $34.99 monthly for tracking, locating, and recovery service.

More than 5.4 million Americans have Alzheimer's disease - the leading cause of dementia - and up to 60 percent of them will become lost at least once.

GTX, Aetrex, and Omnilink collaborated - contributing hardware, materials, software, and customer service elements - to produce the new GPS Shoe solution in order to give caregivers of seniors a convenient new way to monitor their loved ones' whereabouts.

The GPS Shoes continually report their location to the tracking software, which caregivers can use to track the movements of the person wearing them.

Caregivers can also configure the service to receive text messages if the wearer wanders outside of a predetermined geographic area.

"More than 60 percent of Alzheimer's and dementia caregivers report high stress, and one-third report symptoms of depression, according to a recent Alzheimer's Association survey," said Kelly Gay, Omnilink President and CEO. "Our partnership with Aetrex and GTX gives caregivers peace of mind by providing a convenient, easy-to-use way to continually monitor the whereabouts of patients and loved ones with dementia, ensuring safety and security."
