Task Developing a new bone medical standard for long-duration astronauts based on bone strength estimated by Finite Element [FE] Modeling (Completed)
Last Published:  07/30/21 01:05:34 PM (Central)
Short Title: FE Strength Cutoff
Responsible HRP Element: Human Health Countermeasures
Collaborating Org(s):
Funding Status: Completed - Task completed and produced a deliverable
Procurement Mechanism(s):
Directed
Aims:
  • Review Finite Element data from respective population studies that span the astronaut ages such as Mr. Os, Mayo Bone Health Study, AGES and NIH-funded studies (UCSF).
  • Determine if FE strength cutoffs could be identified from these datasets to be used as a decision-tool by Space Medicine.
  •  If FE cut-offs cannot be determined from the data review, then make recommendations for tasks and actions required to determine such FE cut-offs. 

Integration/Unique Aspects: Assemble panel of investigators of population studies, with QCT and FE modeling, to provide recommendation.
