Table 2 Comparison of local sweat rate between measured outcomes and predicted values (Mean ± SD)

From: Combined effect of facial sweating and mounting a night vision device on helmet stability

Condition Local sweat rate (LSR) during entire protocol (mg cm−2)
Observation Prediction P-value
BH 17.3 ± 3.9 20.5 ± 6.3 0.167
BH–NVD 26.2 ± 10.8 23.3 ± 10.0 0.641
  1. Prediction of LSRupper back was conducted based on measured LSRforearm and the ratio of sudomotor sensitivity of the forearm and upper back. In this way, prediction of LSRforearm was based on the measured LSRupper back. Regional sudomotor sensitivity was brought from Smith and Havenith (2011)
  2. BH ballistic helmet, BH-NVD ballistic helmet with a night vision device, LSR local sweat rate, LSRupper back local sweat rate on the upper back, LSRforearms local sweat rate on the forearm
  3. P-value was drawn from the paired sample t-test (N = 8)
