The main goals were to have an simple, easy, and inexpensive way to tighten and loosen a space suit. Our idea accomplishes all of those goals by using a lever which is incorporated into the fabric of the suit.
We were attempting to solve the problem of easiness while trying to get into a space suit. The “Bio-suit” is designed to add pressure to the human body in order to mimic the pressure created on earth (ie, around 14 pounds of pressure per square inch).
It’s important because of the strides that we have taken in trying to colonize space and explore the “last great frontier” yet space suits have changed very little in the past 40 years.
