Human Engineering Topics for the International Space Station 981786

The International Space Station (ISS) is designed by multiple parties and constructed while on orbit. These two characteristics of the ISS underscore a need for an integrated approach to human factors engineering. Such an integrated approach is currently being facilitated by the Human Engineering Technical Review (HETR). This paper reports the results of a HETR on restraint and mobility hardware for ISS and presents some observations and recommendations developed to address the challenges of designing for a space environment.
