Video: Meet MIT AgeLab’s AGNES – Age Gain Now Empathy

Meet AGNES — the MIT AgeLab’s Age Gain Now Empathy System. This suit was designed to provide insight into the physical effects of aging. The various components simulate the changes that occur naturally as we age. Put on this suit and you feel increased fatigue, reduced flexibility in joints and muscles, spinal compression, and difficulty with vision and balance. Altogether, AGNES is more than just a suit.
