Wearable Biomedical Monitoring Equipment for Passengers on Suborbital & Orbital Flights

The objectives of this project are to: (1) identify and set design requirements of biomedical monitoring equipment that can be incorporated into a wearable vest or harness to support the operational monitoring needs of space flight surgeons as well as the research interests of aerospace physiologists; (2) procure and assemble prototype hardware configurations; and (3) test prototype hardware configurations will be tested under expected G profiles in various operator's launch and landing systems using the centrifuge at the NASTAR Center."
