Simulation suits teach medical students empathy
Medical student Ludwika Wodyk fumbles her way slowly down the stairs, her movements encumbered by heavy strapping around her limbs and body, her vision distorted by special goggles. She is one of a group of medical students in Poland being given the chance to experience firsthand how it can feel to be an aging patient. The students at the University of Lublin don special suits to place strain on their limb and hand muscles and the bones of their spine, restricting mobility.
