An Investigation Of Temperature Sensing Textiles For Temperature Monitoring In Performance Sports
Estrel Convention Center, Berlin, Germany
17:30 - 17:50
This presentation will overview the use of novel temperature sensing electronic yarns to monitor body skin temperature during sub maximal cycling trials. The construction of the electronic yarns, previous work leading to this study, and the results from the sub maximal cycling trials will be discussed.
