SD&C Senior Suit Beta 3


Age simulation suit intended for the training of medical professionals and for the education of those having frequent business contact with the elderly. In comparison to Senior Suit Alpha, the Senior Suit Beta includes a completely realistic visual simulation with five optical aging factors, and a flap-up-visor allows the choice of either 20 or 40 years of visual aging. Hearing loss can be emphasized with an electronic tinnitus simulation. Loss of movability can be simulated in different intensities.

SKU: SD-2131 Category:


The SD&C Senior Suit ® Beta is especially intended for education and training. The age suit simulates the following effects:

• High frequency hearing impairment
• Special optics simulating 5 aging factors
• Loss of visual acuity over 20 and 40 years of age
• Change of color vision
• Limited peripheral vision
• Slight macular degeneration
• Greater visual need for light
• Limitation of head movement
• Reduction of muscular body strength
• Stiffness in the back
• Shortness of breath
• Loss of strength in the arms
• Reduced elbow movability
• Deterioration in sensitivity of the fingertips
• Contracture of wrist joints
• Reduced knee joints movability
• 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.
