The height-compensating suit is a jumpsuit with gloves and socks, which is tightly fitted to the pilot’s figure by lacing, put on and removed with the help of zippers and is made of low-stretch, gas-permeable (to improve the natural ventilation of the suit) fabric. Uniform, equal to the pressure of oxygen in the lungs, pressure on the entire surface of the human body is ensured by the supply of oxygen under pressure to the tensioning devices – pneumatic tubes running along the sides of the sleeves, legs and back of the VKK, and into the breathing-compensating chamber (the so-called abdominal compensator, located under by the sheath of the overalls in the chest and abdomen and connected to the respiratory system). Pneumatic tubes increase in diameter when pressure is applied to them, tighten the ribbons that tighten the shell of the overalls and create mechanical pressure on the body. An altitude-compensating suit (VKK) is an individual pilot’s equipment to compensate for the effect of a sharp pressure drop in the cockpit of an aircraft in the event of a particular abnormal or emergency situation, in particular to counteract low barometric pressure in the event of a cabin depressurization at significant altitudes (hence the name), where the impact of pneumobaric factors on the human body can have critical consequences up to death.
