Combining techniques to enhance protection against high sustained accelerative forces.


Five volunteer subjects were tested for acceleration tolerance under eight different experimental conditions representing relaxed and unprotected tolerance and tolerance with all possible combinations of the Anti-G suit, the M-1 maneuver, and supination in a PALE seat. The individual and combined effects of the various acceleration protective techniques were examined as they related to various models for acceleration protection, and the data revealed no statistically significant deviations from a simple additive model. The apparent net additivity was interpreted as resulting from a combination of additive, synergistic, and overlapping mechanisms.
