Rendever's virtual reality platform gives residents of senior living communities the ability to enjoy life again, with VR for seniors and live programming.

Seniors have spent the past two years suffering from two pandemics: one caused by COVID-19, another by the social isolation intended to reduce the virus’s spread. Rendever offers a high-tech solution for the latter: using virtual reality, it creates shared experiences for seniors, meant to combat isolation and loneliness (which are associated with health risks like dementia and stroke) as well as improve physical fitness. Rendever’s tech, which is in use in over 400 nursing homes across the U.S., Canada, and Australia, is “changing the lives of participants all over the world for the better,” says co-founder and CEO Kyle Rand.
