Bed experiment the volunteers spend all day in bed
• The bed experiment the volunteers spend all day in bed
Lie on the stove but have cakes - who does not dream of such a life? I wonder what is really possible to get impressive rewards for lying in bed. For example, not so long ago, these experiments were conducted at NASA and the French Institute for Space Medicine and Physiology. Volunteers are needed to stay in bed for 40 and 60 days, respectively. But all this is - mere trifles in comparison with experiment, which 30 years ago put in the USSR.
The experiments suggesting that the subject is kept in bed from time to time conducted research centers devoted to the study of the effects of gravity on the human body. To create a virtual "weightlessness", a volunteer on the bed, which is at an angle of 6 degrees. In this case, the feet are above your head. It is in such a position has to be volunteers in the experiment, for weeks they are "glued" to the bed: lying wash, eat, drink, defecate.
A NASA experiment 55 participants in 2014, Andrew became Ivanjicki. The guy in real life intensely involved in sports, but decided that a two-month experiment - a great chance to improve their welfare. He agreed to the 40 days of bed rest and the next three weeks of rehabilitation. During the experiment, he has admitted that it is not so and just lie with raised legs. Such a position of the body causing severe headaches, discomfort when consuming food, difficult to sleep, and even can cause panic attacks.
After the completion of the experiment rehabilitation is necessary, as in the experimental problems with walking, many people do not keep their heads on their own.
two months to stay in bed and offered to volunteers at the French Research Institute. For the experiment, we selected 24 healthy men without bad habits at the age of 20 to 45 years. They had to spend two months in a supine position, a necessary condition: in all hygienic procedures, or active at least one shoulder should touch the bed. The Americans and the French for their participation in these experiments give serious financial reward.
These experiments pale in comparison to the experience that volunteers have put on in the Soviet Union. In January 1986, he launched a program under which 11 people spent lying 370 days, that is actually a little more than a year. As a reward for participating in the experiment, they were given on the car.
