A smart shoe insert gives families the ability to track loved ones suffering from dementia or some other kind of cognitive impairment.
The device slips right into your shoes, so it’s pretty hard to lose but it doesn’t call attention to itself.
Using a computer, smartphone, or tablet, you’ll be able to monitor a loved one’s movements and also receive an alert if they go outside of specific geographical areas. For example, you could be alerted if they leave the immediate neighborhood.
The service isn’t cheap. The initial purchase of the insert is $299 plus monthly fees of either $15 or $25 depending on which level of monitoring you pick. In some cases, Medicare, Medicaid, or other insurance may cover some or all of the cost of the device.
SmartSole is also available in children’s sizes for keeping an eye on kids.
