Aims:
  1. Show that application of low magnitude (0.3g), high frequency (30Hz) mechanical stimulation, will reduce the loss of bone seen with long term disuse.
  2. Show that application of low magnitude, high frequency mechanical stimulation will improve the postural control of subjects undergoing long term bed-rest.
  3. Determine if long term bed-rest affects the sensitivity of the lower extremities.
  4. Determine if the application of low magnitude, high frequency mechanical stimulation will inhibit the changes if they exist Non-pharmacologic countermeasure for the deterioration of the musculoskeletal system, and retention of postural stability.
