I saw on CNN that there are new shoes equipped with GPS (Global Positioning System) which will help with Alzheimer’s (dementia) patients. I thought this was a great idea and wanted to share it with the community.
Your loved one with dementia can be monitored 24 hours a day 7 days a week (as long as they are wearing the shoes). They are monitored by computer and it is instant. With the growing number of dementia patients, I thought this was a great idea.
The footwear company Aetrex and the GPS Company GTX Corp collaborated to make this special show that will be retailing at approximately $200 to $300. You can read the full article here http://www.cnn.com/2009/HEALTH/06/10/gps.shoes/index.html.
What do you think about the global positioning shoes? Would you buy these shoes even if not for a dementia patient? Maybe your children?
