Title of the Dissertation:

The effect of material and design of next to skin worn textiles on (dis)comfort variables and on specific physiological parameters during sport activities


Effects of different sport textiles (determinated by “next to skin” worn functional textiles) in leisure sport oriented cycling on specific physiological parameters were experimentally analyzed and supplemented by statements about (dis)comfort from the athletes. To realise these aims a field test with 20 sport students and a controlled climatic chamber test with 12 male subjects were accomplished. Minor differences between the tested materials could be detected varying for the field and the climatic chamber test, but no statistically significant results could be found.
