(London Daily Mail) GPS technology can help Alzheimer’s sufferers and their carers, with the release of a shoe that tracks the wearer’s position and plots their position on Google Maps.

The GPS Smart Shoe embeds a GPS receiver and SIM card to send the shoe’s position to a private tracking website – helping to find people if they wander off.

With 800,000 sufferers in the UK – which is predicted to expand to one million within the next decade, manufacture Aetrex said they wanted to use technology to enable extra support.
