This is good news for GTX Corp, as tens of millions of Baby Boomers (people born between the 1950s and mid-1960s) are beginning to hit their elderly years, providing an increased demand fortechnologies and overall health and wellness solutions.

Alongside partner Veristride, GTX unveiled the new Biometric Insoles designed to monitor how people walk and help predict if a senior is prone to falling, which is a major worldwide problem.

The Biometric Insoles collect movement and activityfrom special censors and produce data for gait analysis to provide better insight into fall risk detection and prevention.
