Pressure Restraint Gloves

Completed prototypes of the pressure restraint gloves (PRG) and fitted to them to the pressure glove bladders (PGB), which are currently fastened to wrist wrings simply with hose clamps (above, one of many sketches that preceded construction.) Pressure restraint garments fit over the pressurized garments to prevent unwieldy 'ballooning' that comes with pressurization of a full-pressure suit.

In the photo below, the PRG's fitted over the PGB's. Now to fit the wrist wrings permanently, and with an airtight seal, to the pressure suit arms.
