iRED (Interim Resistance Exercise Device) load bearing plate assembly intended for flight (flown provenance undetermined) on the International Space Station, measuring approximately 13″ x 13″ x 5.5″, with attached "JSC Project Parts Tag" identifying it as "Part Number WLST410334-001…Part Name: Load Plate, LH…Quality Class I." Astronauts would wear this plate on their shoulder to spread weight evenly when using the iRED. Includes its original deaccession bag with affixed barcode label. In fine condition.

The iRED was the first resistive exercise system built specifically for space. It was installed on the ISS in 2000 with the first long-duration crew. It proved so effective it was used on the station until 2009 when the vibration-isolated Advanced Resistive Exercise Device (ARED) was ready.
