Kyle Rand - Virtual Reality Staves off Loneliness, Social Isolation, and Depression Untangle

    • Gesundheit und Fitness

Kyle Rand founded a company called Rendever, which uses Virtual Reality technology to deliver experiences that help reduce social isolation and loneliness in the aging population.  
They have created a large library of content from travel to symphonies to meditation and so much more. The experiences are transformative and they’ve been able to validate the effectiveness with data that shows its positive impact. 
Kyle grew up volunteering in a senior living community — which has inspired this work —  and he went on to study the cognitive decline in the aging population. His neuroscience research was largely focused on the link between functional structural changes in the brain that happen as you age.
That said, we think his technology and content have the potential to help many populations. Kyle was named to Forbes 30 Under 30 in 2019 and Rendever was recently honored on the 2022 TIME list of 100 Most Influential Companies.
