WP9 - Medical aspects


Opposite to a flight on a commercial aircraft, during a suborbital flight, passenger will encounter a specific environment. Former teams already studied those features and their consequences in a detailed way.

To go further on the subject, two topics are proposed.


Address one of the following topics:

  1. Definition of the medical follow-up of flying personnel,
  2. Definition of a pre-flight medical examination for future passengers to determine if they are able to withstand a suborbital flight. Propose some in-flight solutions (special holding devices, accompanying people,…) in order to enable as many people as possible to perform such a flight.
