Greetings colleagues,

I am working with a program to support the design and procurement of a sweating
articulated robotic mannequin that will simulate soldier activity. This
mannequin will be used in test facilities to evaluate the performance of
protective gear.

I am looking for data on perspiration rate related to specific regions of the
body (not the overall rate). For example "___ml/hr for the forearm during
moderate exertion" and "___ml/hr for the chest during moderate exertion". I
also am looking for data on surface skin temperature by body region to compare
to the regional perspiration rates. Any help you could provide would be
appreciated.

Thank you for your responses,
