Present state of knowledge: It is unknown if mechanical countermeasures will be effective at preventing SANS findings in subjects exposed to the spaceflight analog of strict head-down tilt bed rest.

Research approach
: In a strict bed rest setting, using postures that have been determined to result in SANS manifestations, evaluate the effectiveness of the mechanical and exercise interventions developed under gap SANS-301, alone and in combination, in reversing headward fluid shifts and preventing development of SANS outcomes.
Target for Closure
A ground bed rest-validated mechanical countermeasure that reverses fluid shifts and prevents development of SANS manifestations.
