In a world where health concerns and limited mobility is distancing seniors physically and emotionally, technology can help reduce the negative health impacts created by isolation and loneliness, and having access to familiar and loved music can bring people joy and comfort.

7digital Group, the global leader in B2B end-to-end digital music solutions, announced today that it has signed a contract renewal to continue providing music streaming content to GrandPad. GrandPad, the first purpose-built tablet for people over the age of 75, is designed to keep older adults connected with family, friends, and caregivers, while providing enrichment such as music, games, news, and more in a secure environment. The contract renewal means that 7digital Group will continue to provide GrandPad users with access to more than 30 million songs and customized playlists designed to improve health and happiness.

The GrandPad tablet is delivered to seniors ready to use, right out of the box. The design is ergonomically friendly for older adults, with enhanced sound and video quality, intuitive buttons, and key applications pre-installed to overcome potential physical challenges (such as hearing or vision loss and dexterity issues) and fear of technology.

“The aging population is expected to become one of the most significant factors influencing societies around the world, and technology will play an increasingly important role in supporting independent living and fostering everyday enrichment for these individuals and families,” said Scot Lien, co-founder and CEO of GrandPad. “Our mission is to improve the lives of older adults by reconnecting them to family, friends and caregivers through an easy and accessible experience that is purpose built to the interests and capabilities of people over the age of 75. In a world where health concerns and limited mobility is distancing seniors physically and emotionally, technology can help reduce the negative health impacts created by isolation and loneliness, and having access to familiar and loved music can bring people joy and comfort.”    

7digital’s music platform has been integrated with GrandPad since 2016. The music service comes pre-loaded onto the GrandPad Consumer Edition simple and secure tablet device, which also includes built-in 4G LTE wireless data connectivity for a seamless, connected experience.

“Music is such a powerful tool, capable of creating emotional responses that boost happiness and enhance quality of life. This is why 7digital is proud to extend our relationship with GrandPad, a digital innovator that strives to provide vital connectivity to the older generation,” said Paul Langworthy, CEO, 7digital. “This is a wonderful example of how companies can embrace music streaming technology to provide underserved audiences with access to all their favorite music.
