Evaluation of Commercial Compression Garments as a Countermeasure to Post-Spaceflight Orthostatic Intolerance (OIG DSO641)

Completed Technology Project

Project Introduction

Results from this study indicate that the gradient compression garments prevented the tachycardia and stroke volume reduction normally associated with a 3.5 min stand test after spaceflight. The garments show promise as a countermeasure against post-spaceflight orthostatic intolerance, can be easily donned, and are relatively comfortable to wear. The efficacy of the garments should be validated after and during recovery from long-duration spaceflight.
