Full Details

After this course, you’ll have a better appreciation and understanding of the behaviour of elderly people.
In particular, the GERT age simulation suit contains components that interact to deliver effects that are very similar to the impairments of the sensomotoric skills in old age. 

The age-related walk and different grip ability can be closely simulated, and the increased mental load and movement can also be experienced via the suit. 

•  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
•  Reduced coordination skills
