GrandPad puts usable tech in hands of older seniors

Techstination feature for Friday, May 21, 2021

Techstination, your destination for gadgets and gear.   I’m Fred Fishkin.     At a time when everyone seems to do most of their communication via email, text or these days Zoom….many older seniors get left behind.    That’s where GrandPad has carved out a niche with a specialized tablet…made by Acer…that features a cradle for wireless charging and easy to use apps….that can be set up and controlled remotely by a more tech savvy family member.   Co-founder and CEO Scott Lien..

“We made a solution that would work for people in their hundreds.  The average age of our super senior users is 84.”
