TechSilver launched the GranPad in order to help seniors stay technologically connected with their family members. The GranPad is a tablet that was specifically designed for seniors, and features user-friendly software. TechSilver launched the product in the United Kingdom and Ireland, and it is priced at £329.95, and a monthly subscription will need to accompany the device that costs £29.95.
The tablet includes apps that are customized for seniors, as well as icons that are large and labeled. Support is also included where users can request assistance through a button on the device. The GranPad also features an 'auto-answer' function, where family members can automatically get through to the owner.
Miles Waghorn, the CEO of TechSilver, notes that isolation can be damaging to seniors and technological integration can help alleviate feelings of loneliness.
