A comparison between conductive and infrared devices for measuring mean skin temperature at rest, during exercise in the heat, and recovery

Viewed: 148
Skin temperature assessment has historically been undertaken with conductive devices affixed to the skin. With the development of technology, infrared devices are increasingly utilised in the measurement of skin temperature. Therefore, the purpose of this research was to evaluate the agreement between four skin temperature devices at rest, during exercise in the heat, and recovery. Mean skin temperature was assessed in thirty healthy males during 30 minutes of rest (24.0 ± 1.2 °C, 56 ± 8%), 30 minutes of cycle in the heat (38.0 ± 0.5 °C, 41 ± 2%), and 45 minutes of recovery (24.0 ± 1.3 °C, 56 ± 9%). The data consists of tables showing results of temperature assessed at four sites using two conductive devices (thermistors, iButtons®) and two infrared devices (infrared thermometer, infrared camera).
