Device Development


The GravitySuit provides a safe and mobile method to shift fluid from the upper body to the lower body by using lower body negative pressure (LBNP), a partial vacuum around the legs. Simultaneously, the suit generates a force from the shoulders to the feet, mimicing gravitational stress. Combined, these effects have a large potential in reverting some of the neuro-ocular, cardiovascular, and musculoskeletal deconditioning during long-term spaceflight.
