WSC provides both radio frequency and GPS trackers
Radio frequency tracking are suitable for all ages and cognitive impairment conditions* Our GPS trackers are for children only who have a medical diagnosis.
The radio frequency device (Wandatrak) has a battery which lasts for 6 months and is showerproof. This means that clients can wear it all the time. With the Wandatrak device, if the person goes missing then Search & Rescue are notified and track the missing person with specialist equipment.
With a GPS device the caregiver is able to monitor where the person is either on their phone.
*Some clients especially younger ones do not tolerate wearing a device. In many cases this can be overcome by the way we attach the device.
