Abstract:

Highlights are presented of a particular human factors approach to one aspect of diver performance - the assessment of diving equipment, its impact on the divers work, and to a degree, his physiological state. Briefly reported are a range-of-motion biomechanical analysis of the flexibility of the two systems and a heart rate-work correlation comparison of the two systems.
