Learning from Space Environments

NASA Early Mobility
  • Studies on Astronauts and space induced elimination of Gravity (Gz-head to toe gravity) versus bed rest elimination of gravity (even though Gx-transverse gravity) still occurs, showed remarkably similar physiological impairments as a result of BED REST ALONE

  • Even in healthy, peak fitness astronauts

  • Critical illness complexity of dysfunction
