Short Title: Compression Garments
Responsible HRP Element: Human Health Countermeasures
Collaborating Org(s):
Human Health Countermeasures (HHC) Element
Funding Status: Completed - Task completed and produced a deliverable
Procurement Mechanism(s):
Directed
Aims:
1. Evaluate the effectiveness of thigh-high compression garments to prevent orthostatic intolerance in hypovolemic subjects
2. Evaluate  the effectiveness of the Anti-Gravity Suit (AGS) at 1 “click” (0.5 psi) to prevent orthostatic intolerance in hypovolemic subjects.
3. Compare the effectiveness of the two garments which provide similar average levels of compression across their respective lengths but provide different levels of coverage (thigh-high vs. abdomen-high)
