  1. New simulated weightlessness study- CNES and MEDES further understanding of the physiological effects of microgravity

    Date de publication:

    20 Février 2019

    Right now and until 29 March 2019, 20 volunteers are taking part in a new study into simulated weightlessness using the innovative method of dry immersion. Led by CNES and conducted at its MEDES space clinic, based at Rangueil Hospital in Toulouse, the study aims to simulate the effects of weightlessness on the human body. It will, in particular, enable us to further our understanding of specific physiological mechanisms and thereby improve conditions for astronauts during manned spaceflights.

  2. Long-duration bedrest experiment at MEDES in Toulouse

    Date de publication:

    15 Novembre 2012

    Why are 12 volunteers about to spend 21 days in bed, lying with their heads tilted below horizontal? Their experience will help to understand changes in astronauts’ bodies in space as well as in bedridden people on Earth.
