Do I know you? Let me count the ways.

Finger prints, voice recognition, retinal scan, blood type, DNA markers, dental imagery, purchases, product serial numbers, account numbers, passwords, URLs, IP addresses and now your personal bar code define and identify you as the one and only you.

We don’t have to ask if big brother is watching, but rather learn how and discover what advantages to us will access of our personal information by others provide and how to protect it from unauthorized access.

As much as we love our traditions, our lifestyles are forever altered by emerging new technologies. We find ourselves using mobile smart phones for so much more than conversations. Besides the games, navigation, txting and music downloads, we retrieve comparative information, read reviews, make price comparisons, re-think our purchasing decisions and engage in wireless transactions while leaving GPS trackable footprints everywhere we go. We locate missing persons, find our friends and pay our bills with our phones. And in an emergency, when a prescription or an allergy can make a diagnostic difference in a medical treatment, our 3G cell phone can retrieve our Personal Health Records providing professionals with essential life and death information.

How will they be assured that we say we who we say we are? The QR Barcode…our own 2D personal product identification code will take care of that.

The Importance of Maintaining your Personal Health Records

Within our brains, the hippocampus is responsible for recollections such as people, places and events. While our capacity to learn and remember is unlimited, stress can make us temporarily forget even obvious items. While science doesn’t have all the answers about memory, researchers have learned that the causes for short-term memory loss can be due to chemical secretions produced by the body to defend itself. Most memory failures will reverse themselves in a few days if the stress alleviated.

A personal health record (PHR) permits you to securely gather, store, manage and share your own and your family's health information - when you want, where you want, and with whom you choose. And in times of stress when remembering the vital information medical services professionals will need to provide informed treatment decisions may be a challenge, many have turned to Code Amber Alertag.

Los Angeles, Calif. – February 23, 2010 – GTX Corp (OTCBB: GTXO), a leader in

customizable, 2-way GPS Personal Location Services (PLS) solutions was recently awarded three new U.S. Patents significantly increasing the Company’s IP portfolio value.


Since the issuance of U.S. Patent RE 40,879, three additional patents have issued. All of these patent applications were filed to broadly cover fundamental aspects of providing a GPS location device in footwear.


· U.S. Patent RE 40,879 issued August 25, 2009 with 47 claims, including 4 independent claims.

· U.S. Patent RE 41,087 issued January 26, 2010 with 27 claims, including 3 independent claims.

· U.S. Patent 41,102 issued February 9, 1010 with 12 claims, including 6 independent claims.

· U.S. Patent RE 41,122 issued February 16, 2010 with 19 claims, including 8 independent claims.


“Combined, these broad patents have 105 claims, including 21 independent claims, which will pose a significant challenge for any competitor to operate in the GPS enabled footwear space without obtaining a license from GTX Corp,” said; Larry E. Henneman, Jr. Registered U.S. Patent Attorney.


The expansion of the Company’s IP portfolio and specifically in the GPS shoe category is perfect timing as the Company is currently working with Aetrex Worldwide, Inc., a global leader in adult pedorthic footwear, preparing to bring to market the patented GPS enabled shoe dubbed the “Ambulator.” The GPS Shoe will afford millions of caregivers the means to monitor those afflicted with Alzheimer’s that become lost due to wandering. The GPS Shoe patents cover a GPS transceiver module that is placed within the footwear and transmission of location coordinates to a central monitoring station which disseminates the secure data through the use of proprietary software, cellular connectivity and the GTX Corp viewing portal.


Chris Walsh, GTX Corp COO and ex VP at Nike and Reebok affirmed; “broad patents effectively creates more barriers to entry and blocks competition. We have been committed to a strong, ongoing IP strategy from day one and continue to invest in our future, offering protection and value to our investors, partners and licensees.”

The College Of Integrative Medical Sciences:

People’s lives often depend on the quick reaction and competent care of emergency medical technicians (EMTs) and paramedics. Incidents as varied as automobile accidents, heart attacks, slips and falls, childbirth, blunt and penetrating wounds all require immediate medical attention. EMTs and paramedics provide this vital service as they care for and transport the sick or injured to a medical facility.

EMTs and paramedics are typically dispatched to emergency scenes, where they often work with police. fire fighters and other first responders. Once they arrive, EMTs and paramedics assess the nature of the patient’s condition while trying to determine whether the patient has any pre-existing medical conditions.

It is smarter to have a Code Amber Alertag and not need it, then to need it and have one.

The elderly may have an increased number of pre-existing conditions that are likely to influence the patient's response to trauma.

In North America, one out of 5 trauma victims had one or more pre-existing medical conditions (PEMCs) which were more prevalent with advancing age. Moreover, these conditions adversely influenced treatment and recovery outcomes and as the numbers of PEMCs rose, the mortality increased. Furthermore, the effect of PEMCs on death was most marked in those patients who had a mild injury. Mortality doubled in the severely injured younger patients with the presence of a PEMC.
