TU Wien - Institute for Construction Science and Technical Logistics
The Machine Elements and Rehabilitation Technology research area deals with biomechanical questions in the area of rehabilitation, among other things.
Technologies and competences
In the 'Multifunctional Dynamometer for Application in Space' (MDS) project, a multifunctional training device was developed to counteract the effects of muscle and bone atrophy as it occurs under micro-gravitation conditions.
Products and services in space
- Muscle and bone preservation in zero gravity
Space related test benches, laboratories, etc.
Laboratories with equipment for movement analysis (videometry, dynamometer, EMG) and functional electro-stimulation. The device developed at the institute, which is intended to be used as a training and diagnostics device in zero gravity, can also be used as a terrestrial test unit.
