60% of them will become “lost” at least once.
70% of those will become “lost” 3 or more times.
46% of wanders not found within 24 hours may die.
GPS SmartSole® is water resistant and sealed in a trim-able shoe insole. It uses GPS and cellular technology, is charged about every day, and requires a service plan – all just like your phone. And, just like your phone, it works in areas with cellular coverage. The key advantage is GPS SmartSole® is discreet and your loved one won’t forget to bring it with them! GPS SmartSole® automatically logs its location, tracking your loved one. If you have a network of caregivers, you may share your app login name and password so multiple caregivers and track your loved one at the same time. The map will pin-point the address, whether it was stopped or in motion, the direction it was headed, as well as the time of the update.
Over 15 million people care for someone with Alzheimer’s or dementia. People suffering from memory loss often will not comply with wearing a bracelet or other tracking device. However, they will wear their favorite shoes. GPS SmartSole® makes safety and independence affordable, which gives caregivers peace of mind.
