WISE-2005: bed-rest induced changes in bone mineral density in women during 60 days simulated microgravity.


To better understand the effects of prolonged bed-rest in women, 24 healthy women aged 25 to 40 years participated in 60-days of strict 6° head-down tilt bed-rest (WISE-2005). Subjects were assigned to either a control group (CON, n=8) which performed no countermeasure, an exercise group (EXE, n=8) undertaking a combination of resistive and endurance… (More)
