What are educators saying about our Geriatric Sensitivity Training Tools?
"You can tell 17- and 18-year-old students all day what it feels like to age and become 'old,' but they have no real concept of that until they can experience it on their own... Once they have worn the Geriatric Simulator, with its extra 50+ pounds and the restraints and constraints it makes on their joints, they get it! They understand why the elderly are the way they are and why they move so slowly... their level of understanding and compassion and nurturing is elevated 100 fold by the time we make it to clinicals."
