Drawing on HeartMath’s research-based personal stress relief technologies, GTX is adding HeartMath’s wellness products and services to provide and empower people, caregivers and organizations to greatly reduce stress associated with caregiving
Los Angeles, CA -- (ReleaseWire) -- 08/23/2017 --GTX Corp (OTCMKTS:GTXO), an IoT platform in the personal location wearable and wandering assistive technology business, today announced it has formed a strategic alliance with HeartMath®, Inc., an acknowledged world leader in stress and resilience technologies that train users to release and reset their response to stress in real-time, and achieve a state of inner balance and optimal functioning.
Founded by Doc Childre in 1991, HeartMath is focused on developing and delivering research-based, practical, and reliable tools and technologies that enable people to align and connect their heart, mind and emotions to produce transformative outcomes—with more flow and less stress. As the nation's leading research and training organization in stress reduction and performance enhancement with over two decades of research, HeartMath has developed world-recognized, easy-to-do techniques, products and programs that help users control stress, take charge of emotions and improve ability to function at the highest level. Their award-winning patented technology, called the Inner Balance™ with Bluetooth® sensor for Android and iOS devices provides real-time feedback on the user's HRV (heart rhythm) coherence level then guides the user into a more coherent internal state.
Dr. Deborah Rozman, President and CEO of HeartMath Inc., commented, "We're happy to be partnering with such a caring and compassionate company as GTX. Having worked with thousands of health professionals, and hundreds of hospitals and clinics, we know that being a caregiver can be extremely demanding. Addressing patients' needs and safety concerns presents professional and family caregivers with uniquely challenging and often overwhelming stressors. We're excited about this opportunity to make HeartMath's techniques and technology accessible to the network of GTX caregivers - especially knowing how effective these solutions have proven to be in reducing caregiver fatigue and the emotional stress that often goes with this very important responsibility."
"We are continuously striving to provide innovative, yet simple to use solutions to the caregiver community," stated Patrick Bertagna, CEO of GTX Corp. "Many of our GPS SmartSole customers are caregivers for someone afflicted with Alzheimer's, dementia or autism and attest that being a caregiver is not easy. It is often a 24/7 responsibility creating physical, emotional and many times financial stress which takes a great toll. We are excited about partnering with HeartMath and further exploring the opportunities to bring their technology and clinical studies linking emotions, heart function, and cognitive performance. Since we specialize in solutions for people afflicted with cognitive impairment, we recognize the great work Dr. Rozman has done and see this as another step forward in expanding our caregiver offerings and resources in our joint effort to empower both the caregivers and the patients to improve their health, well-being and overall experience of life."
