This simulator was developed as a result of a long term research about age simulation. This suit imparts the main effects of aging, enabling you to change your point of view to reach your educational goals. EASI will help you if you work with aged people and you want to understand their view of the world around them. Or if you want to understand the needs of your aged customers and consider them in your business.
