The use of footwear insulation values measured on a thermal foot model

Kuklane, Kalev LU (2004) In International Journal of Occupational Safety and Ergonomics 10(1). p.79-86
Abstract
The use of physiological data from human tests in modelling should consider background data, such as

activity, environmental factors and clothing insulation on the whole body. The present paper focuses on local

thermal comfort of feet with special attention on the effects of physical changes of footwear thermal

properties. An alternative test method is available for footwear thermal testing besides the standard method.

The possibility to use insulation values acquired on a thermal foot model in practice is shown here. The paper

describes the correlation between cold and pain sensations, and foot skin temperatures of the subjects and

relates these to insulation measured on a thermal foot... (More)

choice according to environmental temperature. (Less)
