Anyone who has seen an elderly loved one deteriorate from Alzheimer’s, or seen a child suffer from Autism, can tell you just how devastating and heartbreaking both of these situations can be. Wandering seems to be a frequent occurrence for many Alzheimer’s or Autism patients. Many expert estimates have reported that if not found within 24-48 hours, many elderly patients end up dying or severely hurt. It’s really important to know this if you live somewhere with extremely hot or cold temperatures outside because people are at more risk when they wander off.
The companies that brought you vehicle tracking devices for stolen cars have designed a system made for tracking people. Widely known for its vehicle tracking system, LoJack is now trying to educate people about how its technology can be used to track the elderly and autistic children. The GPS tracking system is called SafetyNet. There’s no question that the SafetyNet tracking devices can save lives and give caretakers peace of mind.
A GPS tracking device can help caretakers to monitor vulnerable family member whereabouts without invading their privacy or taking away their independence. A GPS tracking system can help family members keep tabs on an individual from hundreds or thousands of miles away.
The LoJack Stolen Vehicle Recovery System is an aftermarket vehicle tracking system that allows vehicles to be tracked by police, with the aim of recovering them in case of theft. The company claims a 90% recovery rate, according to Wikipedia.
