Feeling 70 - shopping in an aging suit

What do everyday activities feel like to senior citizens? What is it like at age 70 to climb stairs, pay at the cash register in a store, or read a bus schedule? All that's needed to get a feel for these situations is to put on what's called an "aging suit". A cross between overalls and an astronaut's suit, the aging suit features weights at various points to simulate the diminished strength of old age for the wearer, as well as a restricted range of movement in the arm and knee joints.
