Abstract
The overall objective of this phase of the investigation was to examine the hypothesis that forceful dynamic contractions of the lower limbs would result in greater elevations in arterial blood pressure than can be achieved by the traditional maneuvers in the laboratory setting and to document the normal (at 1G) blood pressure responses to various manipulations and maneuvers presently used to improve acceleration tolerance.
