Aging Simulating Equipment Creates Learning Opportunity at WITC

Simulators for Different Conditions are Available for Students to Try Out

The Wisconsin Indianhead Technical College in Superior is giving students a unique learning experience with aging-simulation equipment. 

The equipment includes an aging suit that simulates regular aging, a stroke simulator, and a tremor simulator, as well as goggles that simulate 6 different types of eye conditions. 

Students are able to try the equipment out to get a better understanding of what senior citizens and those suffering from other conditions, like Parkinson’s Disease, may feel like. 

The WITC Ashland Campus also runs this program.
