Note: The following articles, as well as the last citation in the NASA section, appeared in Musculoskeletal Science and Practice, January 2017, Supplement 1, entitled "Terrestrial neuro-musculoskeletal rehabilitation and astronaut reconditioning: Reciprocal knowledge transfer." From the Introduction: "This Supplement arose from the work of a European Space Agency Topical Team on Postmission Exercise (Reconditioning). The papers address ways that some of the future challenges faced by astronauts might be overcome and what research is needed to develop effective reconditioning programmes, which may also have implications for terrestrial rehabilitation."
