When we think about ankle trackers, our minds automatically go to people who are on parole. While ankle trackers are primarily used for parolees, they can have a variety of uses in other industries. Ankle trackers can be useful for tracking medical patients, elderly people, and pets. Below are some benefits to the different uses of ankle trackers.

Parolee Benefits

The number one use of ankle monitors is to keep track of people who are on parole. Though the parolee may not enjoy the situation, society benefits from this use of ankle trackers.

Lower Public Safety Expense

The first benefit of ankle tracker use for parolees is that it lowers public safety expenses. Most parolees had been in jail prior to being put on parole. When they get put on parole, they are no longer taking up a jail cell, and are therefore reducing the jail population. Therefore, the use of ankle trackers reduces the jail population.

Increase Public Safety

A second benefit is that ankle trackers increase public safety. Many people may worry about a felon being out of jail, but an ankle tracker is a great way to give them peace of mind. Since parolees are usually required to wear an ankle tracker at all times, the public can rest easy knowing that parolees will be caught if they are outstepping their boundaries.

Elderly Benefits

Elderly people who have begun to show signs of memory loss need a little more care and attention than they used to require. As loved ones age, children and grandchildren start to worry about where they are and whether they are safe are not. An ankle tracker would be an excellent way to keep track of them.

Peace of Mind

People worry about their elderly loved one’s safety, even if the man or woman lives in a nursing home. With an ankle tracker, the family can have the peace of mind because they are tracking their loved one.


Elderly people may feel their freedom slowly slip away as they continue to age. They may feel like their family is overbearing when they make them stay home, or they offer to drive them everywhere they need to go. However, in their minds, they think they’re capable of going for a walk or visiting a friend down the street. An ankle tracker can give the elderly people the freedom to walk down the street and feel a little bit of freedom.

Patient Benefits

Medical professionals always want to make sure they are giving the best care possible. Sometimes, however, they may feel overwhelmed by taking care of patients while also getting the administrative work done. Placing ankle trackers on patients will ease their stress and give patients peace of mind, knowing that they are being watched.

The overall benefits of ankle trackers

Overall, ankle trackers give everyone involved a peace of mind and a little more freedom. If you are considering using an ankle monitor for a patient, loved one, or pet, be sure to contact Tracking the World for the best pricing.
