Tracking Alzheimer’s Patients with GPS Shoes

Footwear manufacturer Aetrex Worldwide and GTS Corp are teaming up to develop a pair of shoes with embedded GPS. The shoes will be used for Alzheimer’s patients who tend to wander off. The GPS can track the person within 30 feet of their location. And an alarm can be set off if say a person wanders off a preset location zone.
