MAX *, the old simulator suit from Biel Consulting, allows you to feel in your own skin and perceive the world of people with limitations.

Its design is based on 200 scientific studies of medicine, gerontology, sports sciences and psychology (Evidence Based Design).

MAX has obtained the best result among 5 checked suits. This positive assessment of MAX is due to the fact that it is modular and takes into account the different evolutions of the aging process of each individual.

According to studies conducted by the University of Chemnitz, the probability of a 35 year old person wearing the suit with 60% limitations, who are in a 70-80 age range, is very high. Since aging is something so individual, it is not possible to link limitations with age, but to simulate what it means to have certain limitations, and how they affect everyday life, regardless of their origin and age.

MAX, of Biel Consulting, aims to raise sensitization and empathize with people with limitations at different levels. Employees will not only better understand the needs of people, but will also be more sensitive in dealing with them and will improve their professional skills. It also teaches the importance of achieving and promoting an active and healthy aging and the importance of ergonomics. In addition the use of the MAX suit serves for the diagnosis towards a person centered attention.
