Glitch Happens™

But what can you do about it?

GlitchTrax is working on a solution to help you with that.

About Us

Our team at GlitchTrax cares deeply about product safety. We know there's a better way to find and fix problems that show up in the products we use today. And with software in our cars and our smart phones and smart homes and pacemakers - and even children's toys - how do we keep track of it all?

Recalls

Did you know that we have no software safety laws?

More complexity

As our world becomes more interconnected and complex, we leave ourselves open to risk.  More complexity means more chances for failure.  Like links in a chain, one weak link and the chain is easily broken.

Safety Critical Software

 

Product recalls are increasing year over year.  That presents a problem both to you as the consumer and to those companies who must issue recalls.

Many of the recalled products have software flaws, and these can be mysterious and difficult to find and fix.  Companies need a better way to monitor whether their products are safe or not.

Software Flaws in Medical Devices

Not long ago, only 1 out of 20 medical device recalls were due to faulty software.  Today, that number is 1 in 4 — yes, 25% of all medical device recalls are due to faulty software!

In 2017, nearly 500,000 pacemakers were recalled in the U.S. because of flawed software.  It’s true that good software has done a lot of good in the medical field, but sloppy software can hurt and even kill people.
