SCIENCE HARDWARE USED:
- Sprut-K Kit to determine different human liquid
volumes by measuring the impedance of the body and
- Body mass meter with a range from 50 kg to 100
kg with an accuracy of ±0.25 kg.
- Hematokrit microcentrifuge to separate plasma
FLIGHT EQUIPMENT USED:
- Power supply unit.
Investigation of a state of human liquid media, assessment
of adaptation mechanisms and prevention of unfavorable
impact of zero-gravity on the hydration status and
post-flight orthostatic tolerance.
Determination of volumes of intracellular and intercellular
liquid, body's total liquid, circulating blood and
relation between cellular and liquid blood component.
The dynamics of a hydration status of a cosmonaut
will be first investigated, including analysis of
Homo's separate liquid regions in space flight conditions.
