Dementia trackers are the latest technology

Dementia trackers have been around for a while. However, the latest product in this area is quite remarkable. Dementia trackers are attached to the clothing or body of the wearer and will use GPS signals to track their location.

When a loved one has dementia or Alzheimers, it can be extremely worrying about the person concerned. However, those around them worry too. It can bring many challenges to everyday living and coping with the condition.

Keeping yourself or your loved one safe is the main priority. We are lucky these days to have technology to help with these challenges.

People living with dementia or Alzheimers often experience periods of memory loss, confusion and can have trouble concentrating.

Dementia trackers have been around for a while and can work well. However, given the conditions we are talking about, the wearer may well forget to put the tracker on before leaving the house.

So what is new with dementia trackers?

LA based company GTX Corp has developed a GPS dementia tracker in the style of an insole. The insole fits in to most shoes without making it uncomfortable. The device is already in the shoe so no need to have to remember to wear the tracker before you leave home. It is already in your shoe! This also removes any stigma attached to wearing dementia trackers.

The tracker will show your loved ones your exact location and your movements. These devices not only give peace of mind but can save lives.

These devices are pretty pricey though at the moment and also require a monthly payment plan. However, the hope is they will become more popular and the price will come down making them accessible to more people living with dementia and Alzheimers.
