Scientific Name: Homo sapiens Species: Human

Each exercise device on the International Space Station (ISS) has a unique, customized software system interface with limited functionality, unique layouts, and operational principles that require significant crew training. The goals of this project were to: 1) develop a new, device-agnostic, one-portal software system (NextGen) capable of easily integrating external devices and sensors; 2) develop a new virtual exercise training software system (VETSS) and test its effectiveness to inform and correct resistance exercise technique; and 3) test the acute and chronic effects of exercise with a virtual exercise software (VES) on exercise performance and enjoyment.
