Talaria is a new wearable countermeasure device which mitigates the effect of spaceflight on the neuromuscular system. The device maintains an astronaut’s neuromuscular functionality during a prolonged period in microgravity, meaning they can re-adapt faster when re-exposed to a gravity environment. Whether this is returning to earth or one day landing on Mars, Talaria will help every astronaut take that next step. This concept was developed and validated over 7 months of continuous conversation with Chief & Lead Scientists at NASA.

Spynae provides physiotherapists with a 24-hour insight into patient movement patterns. The device optimises the success of rehabilitation programmes whilst increasing patient engagement and compliance.
