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

CBC News Vancouver (see link below): Dr. Blaber discusses 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.

NEW PROJECT sponsored by Axiom Space (AX-1) Mission.

SFU APL is happy to be part of the research on this first private mission with Canadian Mark Pathy set to make history in commercial flight to ISS.  The result of this test will establish a new technique for measuring the effects of space flight on the heart, lungs and circulation – an extension of work Dr. Blaber is already involved in with the Canadian Space Agency.
