Aims:

1) Determine the efficacy of a novel thigh cuff device to mitigate cephalad fluid shifts.


2) Determine the dose-response curve for thigh cuff application during simulated spaceflight (where dose equals time).


3) Maximize mobility, comfort, and fluid sequestration during simulated crew tasks.


4) Deliver an optimized Lower Body Negative Pressure Design for long duration spaceflight.
