In order to solve the problem of overloading, the common international practice is to use anti-load equipment (anti-load suits). This article focuses on the role of capsule anti-Dutch suit pressure on pilots. Considering the actual situation of overload, if the absolute value of overload is too large and the applied pressure is too small, it will lead to imperfect overload and cause flight safety hazard. Conversely, if the absolute value of overload is too small and the pressure exerted on it will lead to blood circulation disorder Serious or even tissue necrosis occurs. Therefore, it is of great value to study the numerical relationship between cystic pressure and body pressure. In this paper, the relationship between capsule anti-static clothing pressure and body pressure is explored by experimental method. Wearable body surface pressure measurement device is designed based on the membrane pressure sensor. The research shows that: (1) there is a correlation between capsule pressure and body pressure, the absolute value of the body pressure can be estimated by the capsule pressure; (2) The corresponding relationship between the capsule pressure and the body pressure of different parts is different, The corresponding relationship between gauge pressure is also a certain difference.

Thanks to our tutor, Teacher Wang, she guided our project “Pilot Decompression Service Balloon Pressure Test Research” and this project obtained the subsidy of Beijing Reserve Talent Key Project. Wang also helped us to contact Beihang University and obtained the honorary title of Zhu from Beijing University of Aeronautics and Astronautics. We also get strong support from researchers and pilots at the Air Force Institute of Medicine.
