• body
  • The body receives a variety of conflicting signals from the visual, somato-sensory, and vestibular organs in weightlessness. (wikipedia.org)
  • Planning diagnostic, forecast and treatment of medical support and prophylaxis, the use of telemedicine technologies, countermeasures against adverse effect of the "flight" factors on the human body, psychological support, and the creation of a reporting system for activity of the crew and electronic transfer of information. (wikipedia.org)
  • physical
  • the most important factor affecting human physical well-being in space is weightlessness, more accurately defined as Micro-g environment. (wikipedia.org)
  • However, for missions to the Moon, establishment of a lunar base, and interplanetary travel to Mars, the functional requirements for human performance during each specific phase of these missions have not been sufficiently defined to determine whether currently developed countermeasures are adequate to meet physical performance requirements. (wikipedia.org)
  • days
  • Typically lasting the first three or four days of weightlessness, symptoms range from headaches and fatigue to nausea and vomiting. (wikipedia.org)
  • Methods Fourteen healthy male subjects were randomly allocated to a control group (control, n=6, 4 days HDBR without countermeasures) and a TEAS treatment group (TEAS, n=8, 4 days HDBR with TEAS at Neiguan (PC6) for 30 min each day for 4 consecutive days during HDBR). (bmj.com)
  • Data from the 342 days was intended to help inform current assessments of crew performance and health and determine better and validate countermeasures to reduce the risks associated with future exploration as NASA plans for missions around the Moon, asteroids and ultimately Mars. (wikipedia.org)
  • studies
  • 2 However, studies have shown that, even with extensive use of these countermeasures, benefits are limited in preventing observed post-flight problems. (bmj.com)
  • citation needed] On Flight Day Three (Sunday, March 6), following a morning of medical studies, the crew spent the last half of the day exercising and continuing to study the behavior of a space station truss model in weightlessness. (wikipedia.org)
  • currently
  • A recent ground-based study tested the effectiveness of potassium-magnesium citrate (similar to the currently used potassium citrate) as a countermeasure for renal stones. (wikipedia.org)
