Studies of the gastrointestinal tract in the simulation of weightlessness by dry immersion

The project Mars-500 experiment was conducted by several satellites. One of them is studies of the gastrointestinal tract in the simulation of weightlessness by dry immersion. When dry immertion the tester falls into bathroom on a special film. This film is a water-tight plastic membrane layer situated between the tester and the water, allowing them to float on liguid but remain dry — keeping skin problems and execuses to quit a minimum. Below are shown in the photos by IBMP the study of a gastrointestinal tract by electrogastroenterography and ultrasound. The studies conducted Deputy Head of the Department of Supply, Gastroenterology and Sanitary Control Conditions Habitability of the Institute of Biomedical Problems of RAS Boris Afonin and Senior Fellow Eugene Sedova. The electrogastroenterography in this dry immertion experiments is doing by gastroenteromonitor Gastroscan-GEM.
