Aging Simulation Suit GERT - Vision, Hearing and Motion Simulation

The age simulation suit GERT offers the opportunity to experience the impairments of older persons even for younger people. The age-related impairments are: opacity of the eye lens, narrowing of the visual field, high-frequency hearing loss, head mobility restrictions, joint stiffness, loss of strength, reduced grip ability and reduced coordination skills.

By their interaction an effect very similar to the impairments of the sensorimotor skills in old age can be achieved. Especially the age-related walk and the changed grip ability are simulated very close to reality. But also the increased mental load and the soaring movement uncertainty will be understandable when wearing the age simulation suit GERT.

This aging suit consists of a set of separate components: special goggles, hearing protection including ear plugs, cervical collar, weight vest, elbow wraps, wrist weight cuffs, special gloves, knee wraps and ankle weight cuffs. One size fits all.

The suit GERT was featured on the TV show The Doctors.

Those who tried the age simulation suit GERT will have a better understanding of elderly persons' behavior.

The age simulation suit GERT is therefore very applicable in the apprenticeship and advanced training of experts but also in the development of products and services for elderly people.

Warranty: 2 years warranty against manufacturing defects in materials and workmanship. Made in Germany.
