TACA and Code Amber Alertag in the News:
New GPS Technology Helps Track And Safeguard Wandering Autistics
GTX Corp Has GPS Tracking Applications to Find, Assist People with Autism
If the unthinkable happens and your child goes missing, or becomes injured, they should be carrying a TACA approved Alertag. Having portable and secure personal electronic medical records will provide unparalleled security and assurance that you, and your loved ones, will receive the most accurate diagnosis and treatment anytime you, or they, are in need of medical treatment no matter where you are.
Who would benefit from using Alertag
- Children that are prone to wander - If at all possible these children should always have an Alertag with them. If they are found by a good samaritan, police or fire officer, emergency contact information along with information on their medical condition(s) is instantly available through the Code Amber Alertag secure web site.
- Children that are somewhat independent - These children should always carry an Alertag in case they become confused or lost.
- Children that are completely dependent on caregivers - For these children, the caregivers should always have the child's Alertag at hand incase of emergency or an unexpected visit to an unfamiliar doctor or ER. Having the child's complete medical records and medications immediately available in a new medical facility saves invaluable time in determining proper treatment for the child.
- Caregivers - You are a child's lifeline and you should also carry an Alertag. If something should happen to you while a child is in your care, the information available to first responders on your Alertag will provide your emergency and medical contact information, so the care of the child will be minimally interrupted and you will be promptly cared for.
Keep your children and family secure and safe while supporting TACA by making a purchase today!
With each purchase of an Alertag or family pack you make, Code Amber will donate a portion of each sale to TACA.
Together we can make a difference...

If you are one of those proactive types- or if you're at particular risk due to age or ailment -these devices can help first responders help you in a moment of need.MEDICAL QR CODE
Hundreds of thousands of Americans are rushed to the emergency room every day, many with pre-existing medical conditions that could impact treatment.
The Code Amber Alertag solution by GTX Corp. (GTXO), can put critical identification and medical-history data into the hands of first responders, even when a patient is unconscious.
The Alertag contains a QR code that brings up key info when scanned by a first responder's smartphone.
"It's like your own personal safety deposit box," says Patrick Bertagna, CEO,
founder, and chairman of GTX Corp. "Basically anything and everything that would be in your doctor's office in those old file cabinets, you can carry one little piece of plastic that's the size of a stamp." ($ 19.95 for three lags; $20 annual subscription fee)
For an extra measure of security, Lifecomm offers a mobile PERS (personal emergency response system) or "MPERS" unit that integrates accelerometer-based automatic fall detection with GPS technology to make sure help can find you when needed.
"When a fall occurs, or when the individual pushes the button on the device, there's a voice and data connection (and) one of the elements of data we send up is lat/long," says Rich Lobovsky, vice president of business development of Lifecomm, a majority-owned subsidiary of Hughes Telematics. "We identify the PSAP (public-safety answering point) who has jurisdiction... who then dispatches the appropriate first responder to address the need of that individual."

Earlier this year, Lifespire's Article 16 Clinic went electronic-providing an array of services in over 175 locations, Lifespire provided all of their clinicians with Netbooks. The Netbooks not only allow the organization to track what services are being provided at specific locations, but they track the location of service delivery using a built in GPS system, in addition to easing the documentation process for staff and allow for the clients file to be accessible to those who are granted permission within a simple click.
Lifespire's reputation for developing IT solutions resulted in their partnership with Denmark's Team Online-an organization known for being a leader in technology in the field of the disabled. The Bosted system is a user friendly IT solution that can improve and support daily routines of care providers and their organizations. The system is designed to streamline documentation and impact measurements of services and is the result of over ten years of user-driven innovation. "Our advances in technology over the past year have been significant," said Mark van Voorst, Chief Executive Officer of Lifespire. "Not only have we increased efficiency in our daily operations, but we've been able to manage our budget more effectively, collaborate with other organizations to work together for a better future, and above all, provide improved services to our consumers."
Lifespire's commitment to IT impacts more than just their staff and those they directly serve. Lifespire released a new version of the Code Amber Alertag, a wholly owned subsidiary of GTX Corp (GTXO), which will help accelerate the treatment and care of those in need, potentially saving hundreds of lives. Similar to a card you would receive from a local supermarket, the tag features a bar code, however instead of granting the individual access to savings, the QR code grants access to vital medical history. When the QR code is scanned by a Smartphone or any electronic device with a scanning capability, the link will open to the individual's very general medical history-including name, address, and emergency point of contact. One of the first organizations on the east coast to release this new technology, Lifespire hopes to set the tone and encourage others to develop a system of awareness and security for their clients.
"Whether we're partnering with Team Online to streamline our documentation, or ATWEC Technologies, Inc., to install safety systems in our buses and vans, we remain committed to providing quality services efficiently and safely," said van Voorst. Nonprofit's such as Lifespire are setting the bar for other organizations to follow. The more efficient an organization is run, the better programs and services they organization can provide-resulting in increased funding and donor support.

Your personal medical records are back home in your Doctor's office in a file on a shelf. Worse yet, your Doctor's office is closed and they can only help you if the answering service can contact them right away and your Doctor can remember enough about your medications, allergies and any conditions your are being treated for to help your attending physician, or Emergency Medical Technician, with the proper course of treatment. It could be worse, if you are unconscious or incapacitated and cannot speak for yourself, the attending medical professional would not even know whom to try to contact, leaving them no option but to do their best with no pertinent information about you or your current condition.
When time is of the essence, the above scenario is unacceptable and could cost you, or a loved one, their life.
Over 100,000 people die every year from preventable medical errors. That makes this the fifth leading cause of death in the United States alone. Over 90% of those errors could have been avoided if the EMT or doctor had quick and easy access to vital information about the patient when first treated.
Emergency personnel are trained to look for Emergency Medical Information when they arrive on the scene. Unfortunately, they rarely find it.
Fortunately, you have a secure and affordable solution for you and your family that will protect you world wide.
The Code Amber Alertag is always with you and provides secure access (256 bit encryption, the same as your bank uses) to your Personal Medical Records electronically within seconds from anywhere in the world from any Internet enabled device including smart phones. Literally everything a Doctor or EMT would need to know in order to treat you or a family member at their finger tips in seconds.
Code Amber Alertag, never leave home without it.

GTX CORP DELIVERS 1,500 ‘GAME CHANGING INTERNET-CONNECTED DEVICES’ TO AETREX WORLDWIDE AS CAREGIVERS ACROSS THE U.S. BEGIN TO MONITOR THEIR LOVED ONES
Los Angeles, CA – January 18, 2012– GTX Corp (OTCBB: GTXO), a leader in customizable, patented 2 way GPS Tracking Personal Location Services (PLS) solutions, delivers its second commercial order of 1,500 GPS devices to Aetrex Worldwide, Inc. a global leader in comfort and wellness footwear products. The GTX Corp miniaturized 2 way GPS tracking devices are embedded in the Aetrex Ambulator® collection bringing a reliable, trusted solution for monitoring the location of seniors afflicted with Alzheimer’s disease or dementia.
There are over 5.4 million seniors who suffer with Alzheimer’s and over 12 million caregivers that devote their lives to them, with millions more expected as the Boomer population ages; however Alzheimer's represents 60%-70% of all cognitive disorders, so in reality there are close to 9 million Americans suffering from impairments, like Autism, that can lead to wandering. The award winning, patented GPS Shoe solution is the world’s most ground-breaking product containing GPS tracking technology designed to help monitor and locate individuals who have a tendency to wander and become lost.
Professor Andrew Carle of George Mason University recently discussed this potentially lifesaving technology on the CBS Early Show and said, “These are only U.S. numbers with an estimated 25 million cases of Alzheimer worldwide expected to quadruple to 100 million short of a cure.”
With these statistics in mind and the central theme of this years Consumer Electronic Show - “internet - connected consumer devices are game changing…” the Company returned from last weeks largest CES in its 44 year history, with a roadmap to expand its partner alliance to help deliver GPS Shoes to 9 million adults and children in the U.S. with cognitive disorders and millions more across the globe. The Company is developing an aggressive plan to reduce the size of its miniaturized 2 way GPS device, provide a worldwide cellular coverage plan, increase its intellectual property portfolio and add new channel partners domestically and internationally.

If anyone ever wondered if there was a payback for all of the billions of dollars invested in satellites, space travel, computers and the internet, watch this clip from the CBS Early Show.
It would appear that our nation is going to be the victim of a crippling disease for which there is at present no cure. But, technology enterprises, like GTX Corp and it's production and retail partner; Aetrex Worldwide have taken the technology of global location and put it to use affirming for the caretakers of those millions smitten with Alzheimer's the means to find their loved ones despite their inclination to wander.
Turning what seemed at first to be a simple product concept utilizing an existing technology and making it into a practical retail solution took more; time, energy, financing and will power than anyone imagined. But GTX Corp did it and the world will be better for it.
