Today we look to the stars...
A weightless environment has a huge impact on the human body, muscles deteriorate, the th astronaughts have to learn to walk again. Its like uploading an app in your software, connecting the vestibular system to your feet again.
skin on the soles molt and once back to ear
Researchers are looking into all these changes, but Canadian scientists might have some great information for reflexologists in the future to assist in balance control and those bedridden.
Come to think of it, it might be a good idea for space programs to recruit reflexologists to see if they can help astronaughts once back on earth to get on their feet again! NASA anyone 👽🚀
"The research team hypothesized that to make up for the lack of vestibular (inner-ear) information while in space, select skin receptors in the soles of astronauts' feet become increasingly sensitive in order to "re-weight" the sensory system.
The research team hopes that the study will identify the most critical receptors in the foot, which could then be targeted and re-activated among members of the aging population to offset sensitivity loss, which can lead to a loss in balance control and a greater number of falls."
