Simulation Facility for Occupational Medicine Research (AMSAN)
The multi purpose research facility is designed for investigation in the area of aviation and space medicine and human factors. The facility is capable of housing up to 8 subjects at a time and providing for environmental control (artificial light, climate, sound proofing). It can be operated as a closed system and run in complete isolation from the outside for days or weeks.
Short-Arm Human Centrifuge (SAHC), DLR, Cologne (D)
With the Short-Arm Human Centrifuge (SAHC) in Cologne – provided by the ESA – artificial gravity will be created to afford fun-damental research in medicine and human physiology.
Clinostats and Centrifuges in Gravitational Biology
In order to subject a variety of model biosystems such as small plants, aquatic animals, unicellular organisms as well as cell cultures as diverse as possible to conditions of hypergravity and/or simulated microgravity, we have constructed different facilities, which allow an optimal environment of these biosystems to experimental conditions.
