Mindful : June 2014
What’s it like to feel old? Young medical students at Berlin’s Evangelical Geriatrics Center are learning that lesson by wearing a heav y industrial suit that simulates old age. Ear protectors stifle hearing, a yellow visor blurs eyesight; it makes even the smallest task—like opening a medication bottle—a challenge. The Age Man Suit teaches students a key skill in a field where empathy, not a cure, is the aim. “Students grasp what small steps might increase the quality of life of our patients,” says senior physician Rahel Eckhardt, “like being able to visit the toilet alone or getting up without help every morning.” Remission 2 is a video game aimed at kids with cancer, where the player fights virtual cancer cells with chemotherapy and the body’s natural defenses. It was developed by the nonprofit HopeLab, which recently published a brain-imaging study showing how interactive gameplay promotes positive emotions and helps the patients stick to their treatments. In a war zone or disaster area, children separated from family is one of the most hear t-wrenching things that can happen. But a new app, RapidFTR (Rapid Family Tracing and Reunification), collects, sorts, and shares information about lost children. The app was recently deployed in the Philippines after typhoon Haiyan and vol- unteers have documented the cases of 70 children so far. UNICEF wants RapidFTR to become a standard tool in their emer- gency response. ● Tech-Aid OVERHEARD “Meditation, contemplation—it’s not just for monks and hermits. It’s really for people to improve all our lives and business.” Daniel Loeb, founder of activist hedge-fund firm Third Point LLC The aim of the Age Man Suit, developed at Berlin’s Evangelical Geriatrics Center, is to sensitize young medical students to what it’s like to be age 75 and upward.
