Education idea for classes on aging

I’ve seen the AGNES suit in two different shows (the Today Show clip about driving, as well as a program on Discovery about trends/ innovations in technology for aging independently).  Turns out the AgeLab at MIT created the suit.  We never had the opportunity in class to do something like this (the class has since incorporated ideas to simulate aging bodies), but it is a pretty cool (and good) idea to help future PT’s and others understand what our patients may encounter.
