Approximately 4.5 million people in the United States have Alzheimer's and related disorders - 60,000 of which live in Colorado.
- Of these, around 60% will wander during the course of their disease - approximately 36,000 in Colorado alone
- Many wander at night, when usual search options are difficult. They can also become paranoid, and actually hide to avoid rescue
- This technology can locate any wanderer during the day or night, in any weather - even if he/she is not cooperating in his/her own rescue effort
