Effects of sweating on distal skin temperature prediction during walking

Abstract

Methods For this study, the skin temperature (Tskin) of human subjects (4 males, 2 females) is measured at 15 sites (locations according to [1] plus fingertip) while walking indoors (2.8 met). The subjects wear an everyday outfit consisting of underwear, jeans, T-shirt, long-sleeved shirt, socks and shoes (0.8 clo) [2]. The temperature is recorded every 60 seconds during a one hour experiment. The measured data is then compared to the computed Tskin,X of the mathematical thermoregulation model ThermoSEM [3].
