April 25, 2018

The digital palpation device Myoton, which was developed by Artec Design, has reached the International Space Station (ISS), as part of the project “The Muscle Tone in Space”. The goal of the project is to investigate the long-term effects to the biochemical properties of muscles when exposed to spaceflight environment. The results could lead to the development of new strategies for alternative treatments on Earth, as well as in space.
