Abstract:

Human centrifuges have been relatively few in number and unique in design. The advent of high-G centrifuge training for aircrew of high performance fighter-type aircraft promises to result in increased centrifuge use, the building of additional facilities, and modernization of existing facilities. Assurance of maximum safety for the human occupant in a centrifuge gondola is a high priority. The basic requirements of a medical monitoring workstation are described. Centrifuge medical monitoring is a brief but high task load activity. An optimal medical monitoring workstation design is a valuable asset for providing the safest environment for aircrew during centrifuge training and volunteer subjects participating in acceleration research.
