Prediction of Clothing Pressure Distribution on the Human Body for Wearable Health Monitoring

The comfort provided by clothes is a key element that directly affects thehuman psychology as well as physiology in all environmental conditions. Theprimary elements that comprise comfort include the temperature and humidity conditions inside the clothes, which are referred to as the microclimate within clothing: the pressure generated when clothing contacts the human body; and the feeling of the clothing, which is largely influenced by the materials. Among these elements, clothing pressure can be applied to improve exercise ability, reshape the body, and exert a favorable influence upon the autonomic nervous and circulatory systems for medical applications.
