Mechanisms for Improving Fidelity and Efficacy of Centrifuge Training
The goal of our program is to create a device that can be used to aid in the training of proper execution of the Anti-G Straining Maneuver (AGSM). In the Phase I program, we completed human subjects recruitment, testing, and data analysis. We were able to note, to statistical significance, the positive impact that wearing and inflating the anti-G suit, straining, and use of an Impedance Threshold Device (ITD) have on the augmentation index, and that the augmentation index appears to be a reliable metric to follow in the context of central vascular pressure assessments for assessing components of the AGSM and G-suit inflation. In the Phase II program we propose to continue this work and perform the engineering and validation tasks needed to bring the AGSM device ready for transition.
