Use of thigh pressure cuffs to modulate simulated microgravity-induced changes in the skin measured with high-resolution B-scan ultrasound.


OBJECTIVE The aim of the present study was to evaluate the fluid shift in a simulated microgravity experiment and to test the use of thigh cuffs to help alleviate the problem. METHODS The change in skin thickness was assessed by a 20 MHz B-scan ultrasound device. This was performed on eight volunteers who underwent two successive 7-day periods of -6… (More)
