This biobelt assembly was flown aboard Apollo 11 in July 1969, and was assigned to lunar module pilot Buzz Aldrin.

Biobelts consisted of a pouch constructed of a canvas base with Teflon-coated Beta-cloth pockets into which were fitted an electrocardiograph signal conditioner, an impedance pneumograph signal condtioner and a DC-DC converter. They were fitted with snap fasteners which attached to either the constant wear or liquid cooling garment.

Transferred from NASA to the Museum in 1975.
