Centrifuge with lying test person
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. The main focus is on the possibili-ty to extend e.g. bed-rest studies to test methods of artificial gravity based counter-measures for medical risks due to weight-lessness.
