Abstract:

This preliminary study has shown that, under the given experimental conditions, there is no significant difference in the amount of sweat produced by the foot with or without air flowing over and away from the foot. Further, the maximum amount of sweat produced by the foot of an inactive subject is approximately 2-12 g and for an active subject approximately 20 g over a half hour interval. The variation in sweating within and between subjects is considerable. Author
