Astroskin Device

A small battery powered module is integrated into the astronaut’s base layer to record vitals without interfering with daily tasks.

Astroskin Device

Manipulating the recorder in a weightless environment presented significant challenges. No parts were permitted to be detached so even a task as simple as a battery change took on a whole new perspective. An ingenious system partially ejected the battery to allow controlled manipulation.
