Abstract
Summary accounts techniques with their advantages and disadvantages are given showing that in the majority of instances the equipment is not suitable for clinical use. A Sudorimeter, was, although it has now been developed and used successfully in a laboratory situation for several thousand experimental one hour runs of human subjects on a treadmill, variously clothed, and walking at 3.5 mph in a variety of environments. The Sudorimeter provides a continuous record of the sweating rate under a capsule covering 14 sq. cm. of skin surface and is virtually instantaneous in its response. The system differs from other capsule techniques in that the air flow is allowed to fluctuate according to the "demand" of the wetted skin surface, thus making it applicable to any level of sweating.
