You've seen the silver alerts on the news many
times. An elderly person wanders off and can't find their way back home. If you have a loved one with Alzheimers disease the numbers show there is a
big chance they'll wander off. But there is a new invention that could help you find them faster than police.
Tracking Alzheimer's & dementia patients in real-time with a GPS
Shoe tracking device which sends an alert to the caregiver or family member if dementia patient wanders away. Up to 70% of Alzheimer's and dementia
patients will wander during the course of the disease. Technology can now be used to provide dementia help and suport to dementia
The Aetrex GPS Shoes feature the latest GPS tracking technology embedded in the
base of the right heel, providing real-time tracking. At frequent and specific time intervals, the GPS tracking device sends a signal to the central
monitoring station determining the wearer’s exact location and relays that information to a tracking website for you to view (contingent upon
enrollment in a separate monthly tracking plan).
The premise of the technology is based on alerting you when your loved one has wandered off too far from a preset location, allowing you to set up a
geographic boundary known as a “geozone”. When the individual wanders off and leaves the preset geozone, you are quickly notified via an email or
SMS text to your mobile phone. The service also provides emergency tracking in case you need to locate a loved one immediately.

I think you are overreacting OP, it is just a simple device used to help keep our elderly and children safe. No conspiracy here. Souns like an
ingenouse fix to a very real problem.
It always starts that way. Next, they'll be implanting....oh wait, they already do that. Seems
to me like the classic: Problem, reaction, solution technique. That "solution" is never really for our benefit. We just have to be conditioned to
think it is, before we "accept" that it is.
I think this is a great idea for elderly and children with a knack for running off (I was one of them) so I really do believe this is a helpful tool.
It doesn't seem like you need to put any personal information to it, so really, who are they tracking? "They" would have no idea who is wearing the
shoes, for all they know some homeless man found them in a dumpster and doesn't even know what is going on
