[Human equilibrium under conditions of rotation with different levels of increased weightiness].

Abstract

This paper discusses the gravity (of up to 2 g) effect on the upright stability of 16 test subjects exposed either to centrifugation or to artificially increased body weight (with uniformly distributed loading). During centrifugation the stabilographic parameters increased significantly at every gravity level. In the experiments with artificially increased body weight the area of the vector stabilograms also increased significantly. The comparison of the two experimental runs suggests that disorders in the upright stability are caused by the rotation factor rather than by the artificially increased body weight.
