New smart audio technology arrives
Eversound has announced expansion and funding of its wireless headphone technology for senior living communities.
The company said it had closed a round of financing from Shelter Group, Red Bear Angels and 10X Ventures for $3 million.
The company provides a wireless headphone system for senior living communities that can deliver personalized sound for each resident during movies, presentations or group activities. In one study, residents increased engagement by 28%.
“The Eversound headphones provided residents who couldn't hear the opportunity to experience everything being said” says Courtney, Resident Engagement Director at LCB at Otter Creek. “Before [Eversound], we would have people who were getting up during the program or who might be shouting ‘speak up! I can't hear you! Talk louder!' With the Eversound headphones, they're engaging, they're asking questions, they're really a part of the program.”
In addition to LCB, senior living clients include Brightview Senior Living and Integral Senior Living.
