Spotlight News  |

GTX Corp  (GTXO), a pioneer in the field of wearable GPS human and asset tracking systems and wandering assistive technology, today announced the signing of a collaboration and support agreement with Autism Society of America, which has been improving the lives of all affected by autism for over 50 years and provides advocacy, education, information, support, and referral at national, state and local levels through its strong nationwide network of Affiliates.

“We are excited to partner with GTX Corp and begin providing the thousands of families we work with, easy to use technical solutions for those who wander. GTX Corp is a leader in helping parents and individuals maximize their safety in their homes and community. This partnership will help address the growing serious safety concerns of many families and individuals we serve,” stated Scott Badesch, Autism Society of America’s President and CEO.

Wandering is an enormous issue for the autism community. Recent research concludes that 50% of children diagnosed with autism have a tendency to wander or bolt from safe settings, and more than a third of those have limited or no communication skills, hampering their ability to tell someone their name, address or phone number. About 1 in 59 children in the U.S. have been identified as having autism, according to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).

“Continued technological innovation and partnerships such as the one between Autism Society of America and GTX Corp advances the reality that children with autism can be empowered to have a higher level of independence and quality of life. Healthcare and safety is becoming integrated into our phones, our homes and our clothing with the convergence of digital and medical technologies. Our award winning GPS SmartSole and other wander and recovery technologies have been at the forefront of connected health for years, providing new levels of functional oversight, security and peace of mind to a variety of audiences and needs,” commented Patrick Bertagna, GTX Corp CEO.

“As part of this alliance, every customerreferred by the Autism Society will receive a $25.00 discount (when using this promo code: ASA25) on any purchase, towards any GTX Corp tracking solution, and GTX will also donate $25.00 to the Autism Societyfor every purchase made. This is a win win for everyone,” commented Meghan Ravada, GTX Corp Community Relations Director.

GTX has a line of wearable GPS tracking devices, from its GPS SmartSole®, available in three trim to fit sizes, to the GPS Invisabelt offered in two children’s sizes, which come in two fabulous colors, sport grey and heather pink and with an introductory price of $149.00 and $18.00 per month service plan.Watch video
