Recently, precisely the German institution announced that it would launch this particular work to see what are the visual disturbances and neurological changes after stays in space, so that the results can be used in future research.

This is a study that “lasted 59 days, including 30 days of bed rest,” for which they searched for study subjects. They abound in explaining that staying in space, in weightlessness, leads to consequences such as the breakdown of muscles and bones, as well as a displacement of fluids to the head, which is similar to the effect of being in bed for a long time.

Hence the interest in you being in bed for a month, and specifically, “test subjects should lie on a bed inclined 6 degrees towards their head”, and the results are expected to help “develop countermeasures or more effective preventive measures for ensure the well-being of astronauts on future long-term missions aboard the International Space Station, on the Moon or on Mars. “
