Just last week, a young girl in Brandon, Florida with Aspberger’s went missing and was very fortunate to be found safe – but not until after a painstaking and extensive 37 hour search by police and the community.
This happens far too often with children on the Autism Spectrum. Recent research shows that 49 percent of children with autism spectrum disorder (ASD) attempt to wander from a safe environment, with half of parents reporting receiving no guidance or information on how to address the issue.
The MX-LOCare Watch uses GPS location details and real-time tracking to accurately locate the wearer. This technology is a valuable solution for parents and caretakers. What a feeling of safety and security to know they can find their loved ones in a matter of seconds if they should wander off. It takes such a short time for an ASD child to wander off and get into traffic, or a body of water. When seconds count, the MX-LOCare Watch can pinpoint the precise location of the wearer. The MX-LOCare watch is appropriate for anyone with Alzheimer’s, dementia, memory loss, cognitive impairment, physical disabilities, chronic illness, or anyone seeking an extra layer of security.
