AS ONE INTERNATIONAL today announced it released Gravite®, a new device for simulating microgravity and hypergravity, to the global market except Japan. Gravite® is a multi-directional gravity device for simulating microgravity and hyper-gravity. By controlled rotation of two axes, the 3D clinostat minimizes the cumulative gravity vector at the center of the device and makes 10-3 g over time average. Gravite® can also create a hyper-gravity environment of 2-3 g by centrifugal force from one axis rotation.
Gravite® is developed by Professor Louis Yuge from Hiroshima University who is also Director of Space Bio-Laboratories Co. in Japan. Gravite® is an ideal tool that provides the simulated microgravity environment with real-time gravity monitoring for biological studies. The NASA Kennedy Space Center has introduced the device for simulated microgravity.
