Title:
Determination of Insulation Properties of Functional Clothing Using Core Body Temperature Gradients as Quantification Parameter 
Abstract:
Abstract Increasing quality requirements for functional sports- and work wear make their development more demanding as complex interaction between human physiology and clothing is to be taken adequately into account. Previous test designs, often based on subjective perceptions, make a convincing comparison difficult. Material-specific laboratory tests only offer limited validity regarding effects on physiological and ergonomic properties. Principal objective of the study is to compare two differ...    »
