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

  1. 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.
  2. Children that are somewhat independent - These children should always carry an Alertag in case they become confused or lost.
  3. 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.
  4. 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...

GPS Technology Enhances Quality of Life for Autism due to wandering and safety issues

GTX Corp extends its growing IP portfolio and a partnership with Talk About Curing Autism to develop GPS tracking location based solutions aimed at aiding families living with autism

Los Angeles– May 8, 2012GTX Corp (OTCBB: GTXO), the leader in
customizable, 2-way GPS tracking location based solutions has been granted another utility patent, adding to the company’s growing IP portfolio that includes 11 issued patents, 5 patents pending and 34 U.S. and 28 foreign patents under its license.  The multi-patented GPS technology platform will also soon serve as the foundation for products designed to help the millions of families affected by autism, as a result of a new partnership between GTX Corp and Talk About Curing Autism (TACA).

This new Patent 8,154,401 B1 titled “System and Method for Communication with a Tracking Device” protects many of the vital communications with the GTX Corp backend processes that are currently being used daily by the Company’s licensed enterprise partners and consumers, enhancing the Company’s barriers to entry in the growing $13 billion location based services industry.  “This new patent has 30 claims, including 2 independent claims.  One of the independent claims is directed to a tracking device with remotely configurable settings and the other independent claim is directed to a method of communicating configuration data to a tracking device.  This patent further strengthens the Company’s already extensive IP portfolio and overall value,” said Larry E. Henneman, Jr., Registered U.S. Patent Attorney.

Continued technological innovation and partnerships such as the one between TACA and GTX Corp advances the reality that healthcare is no longer limited to what happens in the hospital.  Healthcare and safety is becoming integrated into our phones, our homes and even our clothing with the convergence of digital and medical technologies. “We are excited to partner with GTX Corp and to begin providing the thousands of families we work with, technical solutions for those diagnosed with autism who wander from their families. This partnership will address the serious safety concerns for the many families we serve,” stated Lisa Ackerman, TACA Founder.

 “With our award winning multi-patented GPS Smart Shoe and patent-pending Alertag we 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, CEO of GTX Corp. “We look forward to developing and bringing to market new, innovative products that both satisfy the ever-increasing consumer demand for location based solutions and that will help support the families challenged with a special needs child.”

Wandering is an enormous issue for the autism community. Recent research concludes that 48% of children diagnosed with autism wander and are susceptible to injury, death and other safety issues.  This partnership will offer families affected by autism a solution for helping track and potentially assist in keeping their loved one safe.

Recently analyst firm TNS said a majority of people around the world were now recognizing the value of sharing their location. Given the report, almost one fifth, or 19 percent, of the world's mobile users are already using location based services, and more than three times that (62 percent) aspire to do so very soon. With the expectation of this market seeing sizable growth over the next few years GTX Corp is positioning itself well by continuing to build a strong intellectual property portfolio and expand its strategic relationships.
