Previous research have showed that cold injuries of feet occur more often than cold injuries of hands. Recently, an unexpectedly large number of cold injuries were observed during military training in Norway and a relationship between cold injuries and the use of the Alico ski boot was suspected. The Marine Corps and the Defence Clothing agency asked TNO to investigate whether the Alico ski boot, in combination with the Berghaus gaiter, and the arctic sock would lead to an increased risk for…

Moisture management properties of ski-boot liner materials
Despite the markedly improved comfort of ski shoes, feet remain to be the part of the body most vulnerable to cold. The major insulation of the ski boot is provided by the liner. In this study the

The conclusion is that our device for measuring water vapour absorption under different climatic conditions is very consistent, but in future we aim to connect the foot temperature simulation model
