Simulator for Injuries

1 recipient will receive $400,000. This is a first-time earmark.
Year Enacted: 2005
Description: Research at the Cleveland Clinic foundation strongly suggests that the bone density loss observed during spaceflight can be mitigated through exercise. The primary purpose of this research program grant is to utilize a musculoskeletal simulator that will allow researchers with the capability to simulate a range of foot-ground interactions encountered during exercise in microgravity. Data produced through these simulations will be provided to NASA for utilization in development of exercise equipment for future missions.
