Recent Developments and Future Ideas for the Gravity Loading Countermeasure Skinsuit


Abstract: The Gravity Loading Countermeasure Skinsuit (GLCS) is a passive, wearable countermeasure concept that seeks to reduce physiological deconditioning in astronauts during long-duration spaceflight. I will be discussing recent design and modeling efforts on the Gravity Loading Countermeasure Skinsuit, including some details on a recent parabolic research flight, as well as my ideas for future work in developing and characterizing the suit.
