Health in Space
Apollo spacecraft carried equipment to help the crews maintain their health, treat minor medical problems, and dispose of wastes.
On the Apollo 11 flight this equipment allowed the astronauts to exercise within the limited confines of an Apollo spacecraft.
This harness contains a set of sensors that monitor an astronaut's heart and respiratory rate.
