The Care Trak System is designed to assist Emergency Service in locating at risk individuals with Alzheimer's, dementia, Autism, Down System and Traumatic Brain injuries. In the event these individuals wander they can be easily located. Care Trak has been in operation since 1986 and with over 2,000 searches nation wide has a 100% success rate.
The system consists of a watch like tracking band worn by the at risk individual and a Hand held telemetry tracking antenna using radio waves. Emergency Responders on the ground or in the air track the individual and typically they are found within 30 minutes.
Woodford County purchased the system exclusively with private donations from local individuals and businesses.
