Abstract

Two different anti-G flight suits are compared. The first suit uses a bladder system to compress the lower limbs and abdomen and the second uses a tightening system to produce compression evenly for the lower body. Studies were performed using a centrifuge cabin with exposure to acceleration forces up to 2.5 G. Suits were compared for protection efficiency, comfort, complaints, and put on ease. Results of the study, including heart rate dynamics, ear vascular pulsation amplitude, and peripheral vision loss are presented.
