Task Extent, Causes, and Countermeasures of Impaired Fracture Healing in Hypogravity (Completed)
Last Published:  07/29/22 01:33:24 PM (Central)
Short Title: Fracture Healing
Responsible HRP Element: Human Health Countermeasures
Collaborating Org(s):
National Space Biomedical Research Institute (NSBRI)
Funding Status: Completed - Task completed and produced a deliverable
Procurement Mechanism(s):
  1. Determine the scope and extent of femoral fracture healing impairment
  2. Determine the underlying biological causes of the impairment
  3. Develop countermeasures to prevent fracture healing impairment
  4. Determine whether current Earth-based clinical procedures will reverse severely delayed fracture healing situations resulting from hypogravity.


Integration/Unique Aspects: This task is shared with ExMC by sharing information/data generated HHC investigations of bone strength and biomechanical loads.
