Locating Patients and Others Who Wander Using GPS

Project Lifesaver - GPS Technology to Locate Missing People

On Sunday in Anchorage, Alaska, a man with dementia who wandered away from his medical care facility was found using a GPS-based system. The patient was wearing a wristband that incorporated GPS. When the facility realized he was missing, they were able to identify his location using the GPS technology. Project Lifesaver, maker of the device, states in a press release that they have “more than 10,000 people enrolled in its program and has a 100 percent success rate finding Alzheimer’s patients, Autistic children and other people who wander.”
