Aetrex's initial order for 3,000 GPS devices to be embedded in the Aetrex Ambulator collection brings a durable, reliable solution for monitoring the location of the 5.3 million seniors in the U.S. afflicted with Alzheimer's disease or dementia. GTX will begin to ship the devices this summer in order for Aetrex to prepare for the launch date which is scheduled to coincide with the National Alzheimer Association memory walks this fall.

Aetrex will initially offer the shoe through www.foot.com; www.gpsshoe.com and a select group of assisted living facilities.
