LOS ANGELES, May 10, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — GTX Corp (OTCBB:GTXO), an Internet of Things (IoT) solutions provider in the personal location, wearable and wandering assistive technology business, is proud to announce the formation and launch of a new partnership with the National Police Athletics League (NPAL). This partnership is fostered with the intent to assist NPAL in saving the lives of young boys and girls nationwide who struggle with autism. 1 in 45 children, ages 3 through 17, have been diagnosed with autism spectrum disorder (ASD). With such an epidemic upon us, GTX Corp is committed to joining the fight to help families and SAVE LIVES, with its patented and innovative wearable technology. GTX Corp is launching its new size “Small” GPS SmartSole®, Think Dr. Scholl’s meets LoJack, the world’s first invisible wearable GPS tracking device created for those at risk of wandering due to autism, Alzheimer’s, dementia and traumatic brain injury. The families of these children are welcoming such technology with open arms calling it a lifeline of safety and hope to some peace of mind.
As NPAL continues to serve the nation as the premier leader in engaging kids, cops and community, such a public / private partnership is one that not only promotes the ingenuity of corporations playing a vested role in community, but it allows NPAL to propel its mission of “Working to Change Headlines”.
Recently, National PAL kicked off its 74th Annual Conference in Miami, FL where GTX Corp CEO, Patrick Bertagna was introduced to 300+ National PAL chapters by NPAL President Emeritus Christopher Hill. “We love and respect our law enforcement and feel so honored to be working with a major organization like NPAL, dedicated to the well being of millions of families. Their support means so much to us as we work together to provide solutions for the safety concerns of families with needs that also help law enforcement save time and resources,” said Bertagna. He went on to impress upon NPAL Conference attendees the past precedence, and increasing importance of utilizing GPS wearable technology as it enhances the overall safety and peace of mind for families affected by autism and how it benefits law enforcement which is so often called out to search for the missing.
“There’s no doubt in my mind that such a methodically integrated partnership as the one between GTX Corp and National PAL is going to save the lives of thousands of children. Furthermore, this cutting-edge technology will singlehandedly save taxpayers hundreds of thousands of dollars a year, reducing manpower from having to be deployed in various police agencies due to a missing child. Society MUST endorse and support this partnership as it serves as a catalyst to child safety reform.” Ambassador Jack Brewer – Spokesperson, National Police Athletics League
While hopeful a cure for autism or Alzheimer’s may be available within a generation, the escalating costs of servicing those afflicted today could surely bring down the remnants of our health care system before the pharmaceuticals can perform their miracle. However, there is something we can do today. PAL and GTX Corp aim to take away the chilling words that we have all heard too often lately, “PERSON FOUND MISSING” and quickly convert them to the joyous “MISSING PERSON FOUND.”
