Breadcrumbs for Patients

Hansel and Gretel left breadcrumbs behind their path so that they could find their way home after their wicked stepmother lures them into the dark forest and abandons them.

Mark Ratliff creates electronic breadcrumbs with Global Positioning Systems (GPS) bracelets for dementia patients who wander off into city streets.

His company is Breadcrumbs and he is displaying his technology at the American Telemedicine Association conference in Tampa.



Mark also has "Dick Tracy's knockoff watch" that patients who fall down can use to call for help.

If the patient is unconscious or unable to speak, the watch will send an alert and help for the patient will be summoned.
