Suit helps healthcare staff understand geriatric challenges
from Billings Gazette
After a recent training session, Dr. Dawn Corso said she'll have a little more patience and understanding when it comes to working with the elderly. A third-year physician in RiverStone Health's Montana Family Medicine Residency program, Corso spent the morning in an age simulation suit that mimicked some of the physical challenges and limitations people might face as they age. The gear simulates motion issues and other physical challenges many elderly people face, all in an effort to create better understanding and empathy in the wearer.
