The Topical Team for Muscle Physiology has identified and discussed the basic parameters and functions in relation to the change of loading and activity pattern seen during simulated and actual spaceflight. A significant overlap with similar situations on Earth can be identified, with clinical application as a direct benefit. It is pointed that human skeletal muscle samples should be analyzed after long-duration spaceflight and bed rest. Resistance training has been proved to be effective in preventing muscle wasting during various simulated microgravity models carried out over 14-110 days.
