Experimental: The experiment subjects
The subjects will undergo:
Procedure: Ventilated Helmet
The ventilation system is installed on the inner part of the helmet and connected to a bellows and an energy source placed on the vest worn by the soldier. The system's working principal is based on air perfusion with a small ventilator.
- Physiological strain [ Time Frame: 9 days ]The physiological strain will be determined by body core temperature and heart rate of the subjects during a heat tolerance test(HTT).
- Rectal temperature [ Time Frame: 9 days ]The Rectal temperature will be mesured by a rectal thermistore during each HTT
- Skin temperature [ Time Frame: 9 days ]The Skin temperature will be mesured by skin thermistores on 4 sites (chest, leg and arm and head).
- Heart Rate [ Time Frame: 9 days ]Heart rate will be monitored using a polar watch.
- Sweat Rate [ Time Frame: 9 days ]Sweat rate will be calculated from the patient's weight and his water balance
