Besides moving the astronauts around, what are the medical team needed for? I assume they are already wearing some type of monitors for heart/breathing/etc. A call on the radio can confirm if they are conscious. So in landings that we do now, what exactly are they contributing to science? Or is it just routine?
I have heard that they will do a simulated mars landing by flying around the the moon for six months and then landing on the moon. Do we currently have enough medical information to know things like how long after landing the astronauts will be able to exit the craft and start working? What are we missing.
Would it be wise to leave astronauts alone now after an excursion on the ISS? Or do we need to keep checking them until its time for the simulated mars landing, where they will try getting out by themselves with no medical team for the first time?
