What It Feels Like To Be 75!

This is a very interesting article written by a group of engineers who have created a bodysuit that mimics what it feels like to have the body of a 75 year old.  The purpose is to be able to better design products for the elderly.  What is it they say about walking in another’s shoes?  These people are putting that statement to good use!    ~ Becky

  1. I’m very happy an institution as prestigious as MIT is taking this seriously. Why shouldn”t manufacturers and stores make it easier on the elderly? Nobody wants to think about what it’s like to get old until it happens to them. I just hope the “aha” moments inspire the engineers before I get there!
