AFTE: Voluntary Controls

Originally Published MX March/April 2003


Remote physiological monitoring systems have been a NASA mainstay since even before the days of manned space flight. Transmitted to earth, the telemetry from such monitors enables flight surgeons to keep tabs on the health and performance of astronauts even when they are in space for months at a time.

But even for NASA, the autogenic feedback training exercise (AFTE) system represents a distinctly different application for physiological monitoring.

Drs. Mae Jemison (left) and Patricia Cowings inspect BioSentient's version of the ambulatory monitoring garment for the autogenic feedback training exercise (AFTE) system. A researcher at NASA's Ames Research Center, Cowings is the inventor of the AFTE system.
