The patented and award-winning GPS SmartSoles were designed to address the unprecedented crisis related to Alzheimer’s and autism challenges that the World continues to face. Every person diagnosed that is not bedbound, is at risk of wandering and becoming lost. Wandering is one of the most common, complex, burdensome, and costly behaviours of the disease and is a safety issue with far reaching implications for the person with the disease, their caregiver, law enforcement and health care providers such as Medicare, Medicaid, Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) and the National Institute of Health (NIH).
