MedicAlert Foundation Announces GPS Product to Address Autism-Related Wandering
Date:8/21/2013

Turlock, California (PRWEB) August 21, 2013

MedicAlert Foundation gives parents of children with autism a powerful new tool in addressing wandering with the release of MedicAlert® GPS + Essential. According to a recent survey by the American Academy of Pediatrics, nearly half of children with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) engage in wandering or elopement behavior; of those who went missing, 24 percent were in danger of drowning and 65 percent were in danger of traffic injury. To address wandering concerns, MedicAlert Foundation partnered with eTrak to combine the latest in GPS technology with MedicAlert’s 24/7 Emergency Response services, resulting in the creation of a new device that not only alerts parents, but has a trusted service to further protect and locate missing children.

“Wandering is a serious and everyday concern for autism families,” said Andrew Wigglesworth, president and CEO of MedicAlert Foundation, adding, “As a charity founded by a doctor who wanted to protect his child, the new MedicAlert® GPS + Essential product is near to our hearts as it was created to protect children who tend to wander, especially children with autism.”

MedicAlert® GPS + Essential comes equipped with a “Safety Circle” feature, which allows parents to create multiple boundaries around a home, school, and other addresses for ongoing monitoring. The Safety Circle identifies a perimeter in which a child may typically travel, and if the child enters or exits the circle, parents are immediately notified, via text and/or email, of their child’s location.

“As a mother, I understand the importance of always knowing the location of our children,” said Karen Lamoree, chief
