The SD&C Senior Suit ® was developed to sensitize the public for the problems of ageing. The age suit simulates the following effects:

• High frequency hearing impairment
• Vision deterioration
• Change of color vision
• Limit of peripheral vision
• Limitation of head movement
• Reduction of muscular body strength
• Stiffness in the back
• Shortness of breath
• Shoulder stiffness
• Loss of strength in the arms
• Loss in elbow movability
• Deterioration in sensitivity of the fingertips
• Contracture of the wrist joints
• Stiffening in the knee joints
• Loss of strength in leg muscles

The simulation results in combined effects such as impaired coordination, less balance, less overall control, deteriorated grip and handling of objects, uncertainty and communication problems so that so that everyday tasks like counting money or operating a vending machine directly reveal the typical problems of getting older. Several hundred companies, universities, hospitals and retirement homes, assisted-living centers, government facilities and schools all over Europe have used the age simulation suits from SD&C to educate people on the problems of the elderly.
