Company That Chipped Employees Has New Plan – Keeping Dementia Patients from Getting Lost

A Wisconsin-based technology company famous for microchipping willing employees plans to debut a microchip with GPS technology and voice recognition that will be powered by body heat, Three Square Market CEO Todd Westby announced on CNBC’s “Closing Bell” on Wednesday.

The best use envisioned by the company is for patients suffering from Alzheimer’s disease and dementia.

“We started with a simple little chip, and now it’s evolved into a whole other business. We’re in development right now of an actual chip that will be powered by the human body … and it will have GPS-tracking capabilities along with voice recognition,” Westby said.
