    Developed by Rahel Eckardt at the Evangelical Geriatrics Center in Germany, the Age Man Suit is specifically designed to force a younger person to experience the physical limitations of the elderly. The 22-pound suit includes ear-protectors that stifle hearing, a yellow visor that blurs eyesight and makes it hard to distinguish colours, knee and elbow pads which stiffen the joints, a Kevlar-jacket-style vest which presses uncomfortably against my chest, and padded gloves, made to simulate the body of a person 75 years or older!
