Age Simulator is a multi-part and multi-stage project whose indirect goal is to make life easier for elderly people. Get Models Now design office, together with the Faculty of Wood Technology at the University of Life Sciences in Poznan, has taken the gloves in the fight for a better and fair future for seniors around the world.

The suit was designed after many hours of analyzing the movement of a 75-year-old woman who performed daily activities – walking, bending, crouching, sitting on a chair, getting up, climbing stairs or reaching objects from the shelf. Every smallest detail in her movement was noted and transferred to the design of the suit, which was produced using a Zmorph system. The creation of the suit was possible thanks to the use of several different manufacturing techniques: among other things, 3D scanning, 3D modeling, plastering and 3D printing technology, all of which were possible through the multi-functional system from Zmorph.

Originally, the suit was created for furniture designers in order to help them understand the needs and limitations faced by older people. It will definitely enable the production of more ergonomic furniture, thanks to which the life of seniors will become simpler and more comfortable. Furniture, however, isn’t the only field in which the suit will find its application. It’ll also prove to be an ideal working tool when designing public transport vehicles, homes, clothes or cars. It will also be helpful in arranging the surroundings of the urban space.
