Students learn what it's like to feel old and frail.
When we go to hospital, we're not usually feeling so good, so our reaction times are slower, our walk is slower (if you can walk at all) and generally feeling disoriented. Yet when you are called for a test, I have watched the technologist, nurse, healthcare worker, keep speeding along the corridor expecting you to catch up because (s)he has a busy day. Don't they have any idea?
Do not despair! The students of tomorrow are actually being trained to understand what it feels like to be unsteady on your feet, or just.... old! With the use of a "frail aging simulation suit" these students get a sense of what it's like to feel feeble. Watch the video and read more about their experiences on the link here
