Development of space technologies and problems of “home medicine”
* Corresponding author:
Experience of cosmonauts’ health monitoring shows that in the study of healthy subjects clinical approach to the evaluation of various medical and physiological data is almost less effective than the evaluation of organism adaptive abilities. The idea of prenosological diagnosis and the concept of adaptive risks develop in space medicine last years. These new space technologies are being actively tested in terrestrial studies in systems as 'home medicine'.
The report presents three variants of systems, respectively, designed to work with a) home PC ('Ecosan-2007' and 'Ecosan-TM'), b) Internet connections ('Delta 2013'), c) mobile communication channels ('Traffic Lights of Health'). The main method of functional conditions evaluation in all these systems is the heart rate variability (HRV) analysis. HRV indices allow us to construct a mathematical model and to compute the stress degree of regulatory systems, their functional reserve and adaptive risk.
