Abstract : A test program to assess the influence of a negative G strap on restraint dynamics and human impact response was conducted. Research objectives were to evaluate the effects on human impact response of negative G strap incorporation into restraint systems; To evaluate human impact response in the PCU-15/P torso harness and lap belt configuration compared to such response in a conventional double shoulder strap and lap belt configuration, and to obtain human impact response data for use in present and future mathematical modeling efforts which are intended to predict human inertial response to impact.
