Abstract

This project targets the problem of developing a compact and semi-autonomous robotic solution for addressing muscular atrophy for astronauts in long-term space missions. The proposed solution is based on the development of a modular robotic system that can be used to provide muscular strength training to astronauts. A modular robot is a system composed of modules that can be connected to each other to create different configurations. The target application relates the use of ModRED (Modular Robot for Exploration and Discovery) to create special configurations that can be used to exercise muscles while the system is inside the spaceship or at the international space station (ISS).
