60 percent of people who suffer from any form of Alzheimer’s will get lost at least once in their lifetime. Caring for someone with dementia can cause worry and stress, especially if that person is prone to traveling alone. These Ambulator shoes have a built-in GPS system that allows caretakers to keep track of their patients and loved ones.

The Ambulator was developed by GTX Corp. and Aetrex Worldwide, who say that the largest benefit of this footwear is that the technology is hidden to help ease the patient’s paranoia.
