Short Title: SANS CM Bedrest - Exercise
Responsible HRP Element: Human Health Countermeasures
Collaborating Org(s):
Funding Status: Active - Currently funded and in progress
Procurement Mechanism(s):
Specific Aim 1: To determine if donning veno-occlusive thigh cuffs during and for 120 minutes
after daily aerobic exercise can be used to (a) reverse headward fluid shift from bed rest for a
sustained period of time and (b) prevent ocular structural and functional changes from
developing at the end of bed rest.

Specific Aim 2: To determine the role of altered ocular vasculature in the development of optic disc
edema in this spaceflight analog.
