DEVIN JAMESON, JAKE REISCH, AND MATT REINERS founded Eversound after noticing the challenges faced by their aging loved ones with hearing loss. All three had a relative struggling to connect with the world around them due to their inability to hear. Although 80% of older adults have impaired hearing, fewer than one in fi ve use a hearing aid. Realizing that hearing aids were not the answer, the team set out to create an assistive product that would be user-friendly and eff ective at increasing social engagement. They designed an innovative wireless headset system that allows users to participate more fully in community activities. Eversound technology is now used by more than 500 senior living communities in the U.S. Commu-

nities have seen improved attendance, engagement, and well-being when using Eversound for group activities and have seen improved one-on-one interactions among care staff , families, and residents. The company has won numerous awards including the 2016 The Mature Market Resource Center’s

New Project & Technology Awards, 2018 National Association of Activity Professionals Business Affi l- iate Award of Excellence, 2018 MedTech Boston’s Top 5 Gerontechnology Products to increase social engagement among seniors, and 2018 Forbes 30 Under 30 for Consumer Tech.
