After several weeks of testing, Possum has placed its initial commercial order of Take-Along Trackers which are scheduled for shipping this month.
The GTX Corp Take-Along Tracker is a miniaturized, water and dirt resistant wearable GPS tracking device, robust and strong enough to handle the outdoors, but at just 3 inches long, small and light enough to fit easily in a pocket or bag, and even comes with a lanyard for wearable convenience. Additional features include:
- 3-D accelerometer for motion sensing which promotes ultra-low-power battery saving.
- Take-Along comes with its own charging cradle for easy wireless charging.
- Pre-configured with patented wireless protocols that plug into the GTX monitoring portal
The GPS Take-Along Tracker is perfect for ensuring the safety of seniors, children and lone workers who may require some form of remote oversight. While smartphones could theoretically solve this problem, most elderly folks or children either don't have, or forget to carry a smartphone, additionally smartphones are expensive and not very robust, but the Take-Along costs far less than a smartphone, is small and light weight, has a 2-3 day battery life and fits easily in a pocket, purse or backpack, a car's glove compartment, motorcycle or bike. Anywhere you go the Take-Along can go too.
Andrew Duncan, GTX Corp director of Business Development, stated, "As part of our growth strategy, GTX Corp plans to introduce several new products in the connected eHealth monitoring and wellness sector to its global distribution partners. Many of our channel partners have been selling our GPS SmartSoles for over a year and are now looking to us for new innovative technologies, products and services. We are very pleased to see Possum launch our new GPS Take-Along and anticipate they will continue to introduce more of our products to the British marketplace in the near future."
Phil Iles, Possum Sales Manager for UK & EIRE, stated, "After the hugely successful launch of the GPS Smartsole product last year we were keen to explore other innovations from GTX. Possum only adds the most reliable and innovative equipment to our product portfolio which we believe will help people to gain greater independence whilst providing loved ones with peace of mind. We found the GPS Take-Along Tracker to be a perfect fit for our growing product range."
In 2015, it was estimated that there were 850,000 people living with dementia in the UK. Going for a walk can sometimes be a challenge for them, which can lead to getting lost or disoriented even in familiar surroundings. These distressing experiences can result in reduced activity, increased social isolation and increased caregiver stress, so any form of wearable technology that can support people to get out and move about more safely and confidently, such as the GPS SmartSoles or the GPS Take-Along Tracker can be a significant quality of life improvement.
Britain's much-loved actress Paula Wilcox explains why dealing with dementia is a subject so close to her heart. She's the voice behind the powerful new GPS SmartSole radio campaign running in London.
