NEW PROJECT sponsored by the Canadian Space Agency: Effects of bed rest Immobilization on Cardio-Postural control and Regulation

CBC News Vancouver: Watch Dr. Blaber talk about his research into how the cardiovascular and postural systems respond to long periods of little to no activity. The result of this project will help scientists better prepare astronauts for spending extended periods of time in outer space, as well as help develop a workout routine for bedridden patients or the elderly.
