Abstract : During extended flights under conditions of weightlessness muscular activity will be sharply decreased as a result of reduced exertions related with maintenance and change of posture. Apparently, the capacity of man to carry out work related with physical exertion undergoes a significant change under these circumstances. Research has shown that prolonged exposure of man to decreased mobility leads to a decline in his capacity to carry out work related to the use of static exertion. The task of this work included the study of changes in the capacity of man to carry out rhythmic work in manually lifting a weight after exposure to reduced mobility and minimal muscular exertion in maintaining posture.
