||A biomechanical perspective on exercise countermeasures for long-term spaceflight
||June 1992, Vol.63, No.6, p.482-485. Illus. 28 ref.
||It has been suggested that a single exercise programme may be designed to counteract both skeletal and cardiovascular adaptation during spaceflight. Peak loads and rates of change of load on the feet during three exercises that have been proposed for use in the Space Station were examined: rowing on an ergometer, stationary cycling and running while tethered on a treadmill. Results suggest that exercise during spaceflight must be considered from both biomechanical and physiological perspectives if optimal response is to be obtained.
