Seeing the negative effects of social isolation take a toll on his own grandmother, Kyle Rand devoted his studies to cognitive decline in the aging population. He researched neuroprosthetics at Duke University, studying the link between functional structural changes in the brain that occur with age and the associated deficits in decision-making skills. Together, this propelled Rand to build Rendever – a virtual reality platform improving the aging process by eliminating social isolation, in part through bringing the outside world to older adults no matter their physical limitations. The award-winning platform is now used in senior living, hospice, and healthcare settings across North America, and Rand has been recognized across the world, including making the list for Forbes 30 Under 30.
