Abstract : An attachment for use with an anti-G valve to substantially decrease the inflation time of anti-G garment. A spring loaded, adjustable tension level arm provides a downward force on a pressure valve causing the anti-G garment to partially inflate. The increasing garment pressure is applied to a diaphragm which causes the lever arm to rise and balance the force of the spring which is normally adjusted to maintain the pressurized suit at 0.2 psig 'Ready Pressure'. The garment remains partially inflated until the anti-G valve operating in the conventional manner causes the garment to inflate in response to external G-forces. (Author)
