Investigation of a state of human liquid media, assessment of adaptation mechanisms and prevention of unfavorable impact of zero-gravity on the hydration status and post-flight orthostatic tolerance.
Information PendingEarth Applications
Sprut-K Kit to determine different human liquid volumes by measuring the impedance of the body and its segments, Body mass meter with a range from 50 kg to 100 kg with an accuracy of 0.25 kg, Hematokrit microcentrifuge to separate plasma from erythrocytes, laptop and power supply unit.Operational Protocols
Determination of volumes of intracellular and intercellular liquid, body's total liquid, circulating blood and relation between cellular and liquid blood component.
The dynamics of a hydration status of a cosmonaut will be recorded, including analysis of homosapien's separate liquid regions in space flight conditions.
