Brief Summary:

The aim of this porject is to test the Cardiospace system that integrates several medical devices to monitor the cardiovascular system:

  • ECG
  • Brachial blood pressure
  • Continuous finger blood pressure
  • Ultrasound
  • Laser doppler + iontophoresis Cardiospace will be used in space station to monitor the cardiovascular system of astronauts for research purpuse.
