Edorso develops ‘Elderly suits’ together with the University of Applied Sciences in Amsterdam

Anthony Rombach

Edorso has developed ‘ Elderly suits’ together with the University of Applied Sciences in Amsterdam. When students put on a suite they will experience how is is to function / move  like an elderly person.These suites involve:

  • Eye sight problems like blurry vision and heamianopsy and more effects
  • Lower and upper extremities will move slower and can be limited in function using weights and elastic bands. Even contractures can be simulated as well as positioning of the trunk into severe angles to simulate an elderly person.
  • Special shoes that will give less support and a disturbance in the gait.
  • All kinds of diseases can be simulated like stroke, arthrosis and more.

 

In fact when students wear the equipement they totatally change into an elderly person. The AMC in Amsterdam and several healthcare domains of the Hogeschool of Amsterdam are enthusistic about this invention.

These suits will be rented in the future. A video of this suite and its use will appear soon on this blog!
