Designers suit up to see what suits the elderly

Product designers are using special suits that help them better understand the loss of mobility, strength, vision and dexterity that we incur as we get older. MIT’s AgeLab has designed AGNES, which stands for Age Gain Now Empathy System. And Ford Motor Company has built the Third Age Suit which it uses to design cars that are more senior-friendly. Now architects are also using these suits to help them design homes that are better adapted to the needs of the elderly.
