Human Health and Medical Devices


ZIN works to develop technologies to solve the medical and physiological problems of spaceflight and off world surface exploration requiring novel, small, low power, non-invasive and versatile instrumentation and hardware.  The technologies developed are intended to meet needs and also have a clear overlap into clinical medicine and/or commercial application.

  • Technology to influence and monitor the physiologic adaptation to weightlessness
  • Technology to support medical care in space and on planetary surfaces
  • Develop Human performance, locomotion and mission task analogue facilities to assess partial and no-gravity environmental effects
  • Technology to provide remote IV water purification capability
  • Technology to monitor and prevent bone and muscle loss through daily load stimulus measurement and dosage assessment
  • Detecting changes in physiological parameters including cardiovascular status
  • Assessing/preventing human health and performance risks through probabilistic risk assessments against mission tasks and adaptation
  • Providing emergency room capability through remote monitoring and assessments
  • Developing training systems to maintain proficiency
