GPS Shoes: A major step forward
The GPS Shoe will be featured in an exhibition highlighting the 100 most important inventions in the history of mankind. The National Museum of Science and Technology in Stockholm, is host to the exhibtion of the 100 most important inventions in the history of mankind. The GPS Shoe joins other pioneering inventions including antibiotics, the telephone, the internet, the steam engine, and vaccinations in the year long exhibition. Patrick Bertagna invented the GPS Shoe and developed the concept with Louis Rosenbaum founding the Company Global Trek Xploration (GTX Corp) in order to bring this product to market. The GPS Shoe uses the global GSM network and Google satellite imagery along with a proprietary backend platform, to locate individuals who have a tendency to wander or become lost due to cognitive disorders such as Alzheimer's disease, dementia, or autism. Currently the Aetrex GPS Shoes are currently available in two styles for both men and women.
