Abstract
A computer-controlled system for the collection and analysis of skin temperature and heat flow data originating from an array of heat flux transducers is described. The system is based on a program ('THERMAL') that reads, stores, prints and displays skin temperatures and heat flow data every 2 min for up to 4 h. It also simultaneously calculates important environment physiology parameters such as mean body temperatures as well as mean heat flow according to four different combinations of transducers such as the established 3-, 4-, 7- and 12-point (site) formulae. Core temperature, heart rate and environmental condition indices such as dry bulb, wet bulb and globe temperatures are also continuously monitored.
