Autonomic nerve measurement system introduced in space development

In outer space, humankind is subject to unimaginable stress.
Astronauts are not only required to be healthy, but also tough autonomic nerves.
It is the ability beyond the top athlete.
Such research has long been conducted in the former Soviet Union.
It was an indispensable research in military and space development. I'm thrilled with the possibility of autonomic nerves. Image training and mental training have already been described as meaningless compared to autonomic nerve enhancement.

Ground experiments on manned space flight to Mars (MARS-500 project) will be conducted over 2009-2011

• During the project, it will attempt to test various biomedical technologies related to human life support, including crew health assessment and health management systems. The project will last for 500 days. Specially selected 6 subjects will be placed in an isolated barometric chamber simulating flight conditions to Mars for the duration of the project.

• As part of this project, up to 50 subjects will be tested in their daily environment. The 2 group is chosen from different regions in Europe, Asia and North America. 2 groups are regularly evaluated for their health and fitness dynamism in the same way as the first group.

In preparation for the MARS-500 project, the Russian Academy of Sciences collaborated with Autosun Health Technology in Canada and Biocom Technologies in North America to adapt the human body in the long-term monitoring of a pilot study-healthy group called MARS-500-P And the risk of disease development.

・ In this project, we conducted a comparison survey with the VariCard system that we use in the heart rate variability evaluation research over 3 months in order to investigate the authenticity of data obtained from Heart Rhythm Scanner 3 developed by Biocom Technologies. It was. Heart Rhythm Scanner 3 is based on a well-known method of assessing health and fitness using heart rate variability analysis. Over the past 40 years, these methods have been widely used and completed at the Russian Academy of Sciences.
As a result of comparing our data with the data of Heart Rhythm Scanner, the method used in the spectral analysis of both was different, so some absolute value indexes obtained in the spectral analysis of RR interval were different, The values ​​and relative indicators were almost the same. From this result, we believe that the Heart Rhythm Scanner 3 adheres to existing standards for heart rate variability analysis used in modern science practice and is accurate, reproducible and very reliable.

・ We are confident in judging these test results that Heart Rhythm Scanner 3 has very stable performance and is sufficiently reliable from the scientific, physiological and biomedical viewpoints. Can be expressed.

We strongly recommend that researchers and health and fitness professionals use the Heart Rhythm Scanner as a reliable tool in various applications such as health and fitness wellness assessment.
