Study to focus on microgravity’s effect on microcirculation

A research study evaluating the effects microgravity has on the central microcirculation of the bodies of astronauts and jet pilots will begin in 2020, funded by the German Aerospace Center and with cooperation from Imedos Systems, according to a press release.
Using Imedos’ system for dynamic vessel analysis, the study will take high-precision images of subjects’ ocular fundus as part of parabolic flights to evaluate how retinal vessels behave before, during and after weightless situations.
Pilots and astronauts often experience blood circulation problems on return to Earth, the
