PORTLAND, Ore., Jan. 14, 2021 — Digital Trends Media Group, the largest independent technology publisher, today announced the winners of the Tech for Change Awards, a celebration of innovations focused on making the world a better place.
This year, health-centered brands took the spotlight. Four products were recognized, including Valencell’s innovative biometric blood-pressure sensor; Luci’s safety-focused wheelchair autonomy system; EyeQue’s smartphone-powered Vision Check 2; and Widex Moment’s AI-improved hearing aids.
“These innovations can be used every day to improve lives. From facilitating early and easy detection of heart and vision problems to modernizing hearing aids and wheelchairs, these technologies stood out for their widespread impact,” explains Jeremy Kaplan, Editor-in-Chief at Digital Trends.
CES is the nation’s biggest annual tech event, kicking off each new year by showcasing the best and most exciting upcoming innovations and gadgets before they hit markets. This was the first time in its 55-year history that the show was totally virtual, due to COVID-19 safety requirements.
In addition to the awards, Digital Trends created the CES Experience Center, the multimedia online portal through which attendees could access CES interviews, displays, updates, panels and more.
