Space Suit (Mobil Biological Isolation)

A Houston 5-year-old is receiving a space suit a vitally important gift that will give him mobility he has never known. He was born without natural body defenses against disease; germs that have little or no effect on most people could cause his death. He has spent his whole life in hospital germ-free isolation rooms. Now he can spend four hours at a time in a mobile sterile environment outside his isolation room. This specially designed byproduct of space suit technology known as mobile biological isolation system is a rubberized garment with soft transparent plastic helmet. Suit is connected by 10 foothose to transporter ventilator, two battery powered fans blow filtered air into helmet and used air is expelled at ankles.
