US-based commercial room station developer Axiom Space (Axiom) and health monitoring machination manufacturer Danish Aerospace Company (DAC) will collaborate to develop and examination next-generation human performance monitoring and exercise technology intended for place applications.
The firms will test DAC-made systems on upcoming Axiom anthropoid spaceflights to low-Earth orbit (LEO). This trial will start with new wearables to appraisal vitals of astronauts on Axiom’s first mission to the International Space Position.
DAC CEO Thomas AE Andersen said: “Our collaboration with Axiom represents an weighty step in DAC’s efforts to contribute to commercial space systems being come out for LEO.
“Consistent with Axiom’s mission, these technologies provide for an stretch human presence in space and improvements to life on Earth.”
“We have been mellowing our human performance monitoring and exercise technology through prototypes for the close by several years. Now, we look forward to the opportunity Axiom provides for the continuity of our competence demonstration.”
DAC has been creating medical monitoring and exercise systems for more than 25 years. It is now arising wireless physiological monitors and compact exercise equipment that can strengthen humans not just in space but also in other harsh environments.
Additionally to monitoring of crew health, DAC and Axiom will explore DAC’s next-generation commercial while ergometer FERGO and its multifunction exercise system on the future Axiom Position.
DAC has earlier developed ergometers that are used in the Space Shuttle and ISS lists.
Axiom Space CEO Michael T Suffredini said: “The work with DAC authenticates the development of technologies required for healthy, long-duration space habitation.
“In harmony with Axiom’s mission, these technologies provide for an expanded mortal presence in space and improvements to life on Earth.”
