Abstract

The aim of this study was to investigate changes in performance of sensorimotor function in crewmembers during the NASA’s Extreme Environment Mission Operations (NEEMO). Our data reveal that measuring the degree of upper body balance and gait regularity during tandem walking using body-worn inertial sensors provided a sensitive and objective quantification of movement abnormalities due to changes in sensorimotor performance over the duration of mission exposure.
