Physiologic Monitoring (NEEMO-PHYS)
Principal Investigators
Research Area:
Cardiovascular physiology
Clinical medicine
Species Studied
Scientific Name: Homo sapiens Species: Human

The objective of the Physiologic Monitoring experiment was to test wireless medical monitoring devices and their accompanying procedures in a metal-walled habitat similar to the International Space Station (ISS). Specifically, crewmembers assessed ease of use, assessed the ability to transmit/receive data over a period of several days in an isolated/busy environment, assessed hardware for robustness, and observed potential problems in microgravity.
