Abstract : It is concluded that there is no single optimum back angle. Rather a back angle range of +10 degrees through -10 degrees appears to permit minimum distortion of cardiovascular function during a 90 second exposure to +G sub x forces ranging from 1 through 10 with the G sub z components varying from -0.75 through +2.7. In order to accurately evaluate the physiological effects produced by increased G loading, or the tolerance limits to these forces, it is imperative that the magnitude and direction of both the G sub x and G sub z vectors be known.
