Zero Pre-breathe Joint
Today, spacewalks require an extensive procedure of decompression and purging of nitrogen. This is due to the reduced mobility that exists in a pressurised suit. This project explores the design of soft joints to improve mobility in a pressurised suit; to the extent of increasing the operation pressure closer to Earth's thereby removing this painful step for spacewalks.
