Rendever Unveils RendeverFit- A New Virtual Reality Fitness Platform for Seniors

Rendever | September 08, 2021

Rendever, the leading virtual reality (VR) platform built to help seniors overcome social isolation through shared experiences, today announces the launch of its new interdisciplinary VR fitness platform, RendeverFit - the first VR application that merges physical fitness with cognitive fitness and socialization, designed specifically for older adults. This new product offering comes on the heels of a $2M NIH Phase II grant, allowing the Rendever team to further research the impact of VR on seniors.

Studies show that physical activity among older adults reduces the risk of numerous diseases and chronic conditions, delays the onset of dementia, and improves overall health and wellbeing. Meanwhile, social engagement is proven to improve mental health, emotional, psychological, and cognitive function. In response, RendeverFit was created, combining physical activity with social engagement for senior living residents to stay healthy while having fun together.

“Social health is a critical factor when families are considering whether it is best for a loved one to transition into a senior living community or remain at home. Through Rendever’s research, we understand the impact of virtual reality on residents’ social health, and are excited to continue growing our platform to take a more holistic approach to wellbeing,” said Kyle Rand, Cofounder and CEO of Rendever. “By combining healthy physical movement with the overall wellness of increased socialization, RendeverFit will help senior living communities expand their resident care through our fun and dynamic platform. The new RendeverFit™ platform will follow in the footsteps of other award-winning Rendever products, giving communities an arsenal of tools to utilize daily while delivering high quality care.”

At launch, there are three modules within the RendeverFit platform, including Cycle, Paddle, and Paint - which leverages MultiBrush by Rendever, the first available multiplayer version of Tilt Brush that the company released in February.

“VR is proven to naturally get people moving, whether it be looking around in a headset or moving one’s arms to control the experience. RendeverFit is designed to engage residents with safe full-body movement while allowing them to get creative and compete against their neighbors,” said Tom Neumann, Cofounder and CTO of Rendever. “By introducing an element of fun, we’ve heard from staff that residents are motivated and excited to exercise via RendeverFit.”

RendeverFit is Rendever’s first product in the exercise space, but follows other recent developments in the company’s approach to broadening health benefits. In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, the company launched RendeverLive to deliver live programming that includes weekly mindfulness sessions, and has been onboarding outside health and wellness instructors through the platform. Most recently, the company announced a mental health programming partnership with Muse.

"When I witnessed RendeverFit with my community members, I was overwhelmed with the possibilities and tangible applications this platform will provide. The residents and my team were astounded by what the future holds,” said Marcus Kubicheck at Monarch Healthcare Management. “It was a beautiful experience to see the authentic smiles that everyone shared, especially after exercising! RendeverFit  IS the future of long-term care and a shining example of a clinical therapeutic intervention that promotes community health."

RendeverFit will be officially unveiled at the 2021 Argentum Senior Living Executive Conference & Expo in Phoenix, Arizona, September 13 to 15, 2021. Attendees of the conference will be able to demo and experience RendeverFit for the first time by visiting Rendever’s booth (#529) within the Exhibitor Expo. For every mile attendees bike through the Cycle module at Argentum, Rendever will donate to Pedal for Alzheimer’s, helping to find a cure for the devastating disease.

RendeverFit is currently available for pre-order for all senior living communities and healthcare organizations, with system delivery beginning in December 2021.

Digital Turbine and Apptopia Release Their Brand Insights Report

Digital Turbine | March 10, 2023

Digital Turbine, an independent mobile growth platform, and Apptopia released the 2023 Q1 BRAG (Brand Relative App Growth) Brand Insights Report, a part of ongoing report series. This report provides brand-oriented mobile growth insights for CMOs and UA Marketers. The report reveals new intelligence based on consumer sentiments for brand mobile apps across five categories; travel, social media, shopping, streaming audio, and streaming video. It empowers UA Managers and CMOs with new insights for mobile growth, which the leading brands undertake. The first BRAG index got released in 2020, and the subsequent reports continued to research the relationship of brand equity with mobile growth. The report analyzed Metrics like Brand Love, Brand Power and Love Compass. Brand Love is the strength of favorable opinions for brands, and Brand Power measures a brand's influence on consumer interest in installing their application. Love Compass scaled the change in user opinion; several users' responses improved or deteriorated in the last 90 days. The leaders for each metric across the five categories in the report are as follows: Brand Love: Netflix, Amazon, Amazon Music, Life360, and Marriott Bonvoy Brand Power: Prime Video, Amazon Music, Amazon, TripAdvisor and Messenger Love Compass: Paramount+, Fetch, BeReal, TouchTunes, and Marriott Bonvoy CMO at Digital Turbine, Gregory Wester said, "Not all marketing investments immediately impact mobile growth." He added, "That said, our past BRAG analysis has shown the direct correlation between an increase in brand strength and success in mobile growth. The brands we measured outperformed in terms of Love, Power, and Compass, and are primed for outsized mobile growth. Next quarter, we'll find out who executed against their potential. Equally important, BRAG will reveal who outperformed without coveted brand metrics."

Ranker Insights Leverages Fan Votes to Provide Data Solutions for CTV Advertising

Ranker | February 03, 2023

On February 2, 2023, Ranker and its platform Ranker Insights, powered by over 1.3 billion fan votes, began collaborating with AdTech and Data Platform companies to provide entertainment brands and their agencies with a layer of connectivity for their CTV advertising. In a media environment that is becoming increasingly fragmented, targeted advertising has become significantly more challenging. Ranker Insights offers solutions to inherent problems media companies face when attempting to boost ad dollar effectiveness. While programmatic ad spending in CTV revenue continues to rise and provides some effective routes for entertainment brands to target audiences, no ideal data source for show-level targeting is currently available. Demographic-based segments are too unfocused for today's entertainment consumer's staggering number of options. Social listening data is incomplete and increasingly used only within platforms, while obtaining and targeting consumers with viewership data is becoming more challenging. Consumption data is flawed due to multiple users in a household, and viewing does not indicate liking when it comes to TV. Ranker Insights uses fan sentiment from millions of US voters to address these issues. Its data is anonymous and unaffected by privacy laws. Post-consumption data drives votes on the platform, indicating whether the response was positive or negative. The platform includes fans of over 10,000 titles from all major OTT services and networks and builds a ‘Lifetime’ taste history for the consumers. The solution helps brands extend campaigns by reaching unexpected audiences with strong affinities and hard-to-reach premium SVOD audiences of original series. In this emerging market, fan data is essential because content providers keep viewership data in-house. This data can be used alone or supplemented with other sources and solves entertainment advertiser and agency pain points regardless of the use case. About Ranker Based in Los Angeles, California, Ranker is the leader in fan-powered rankings. Ranker Insights, powered by over 1 billion votes, provides marketers, studios, and platforms with personalized consumer recommendations and audience insights using psychographic correlation data. In addition, Watchworthy, launched by the company in 2020, provides statistically relevant, crowdsourced TV recommendations to consumers. The firm is on Deloitte's 2019 Technology Fast 500, Built In LA's Top 50 Mid-Sized Companies To Work For in 2020 and 2021, and Fast Company's World's Most Innovative Companies for 2021 lists
