Ride This Bike to Better Understand Multiple Sclerosis
Bicycle simulates symptoms of a debilitating disease to raise awareness
This Bike Has MS is a specially adapted bicycle that simulates the experience of multiple sclerosis and its symptoms when ridden.
The bike is an example of a larger-scale effort to simulate disabilities and diseases using technology to help people empathize. Another example, which was on show at CES, is the Genworth R70i exoskeleton suit. This suit provides an emulated experience of the effects of aging, including hearing impairments, mobility challenges, vision disorders, muscle loss and arthritis.
