Pedalling in space as a countermeasure to microgravity deconditioning.


A system consisting of two mechanically coupled counter rotating bicycles, moving on the inner wall of a cylindrical space module, is proposed to prevent microgravity deconditioning. The two pedalling subjects generate a centrifugal acceleration vector (ac) simulating gravity. This last depends on the peripheral velocity (v) and on the radius of gyration (R… (More)
