Measurement of temperature dependent heat flow rate from human limbs towards thermoelectric cooling device

Link, G., Stelzle, M. (2017).

Med Devices Diagn Eng 2(1): 72-74.

Regulated cooling devices promise improved outcomes with respect to pain relief and speed of rehabilitation after injuries of the musko-skeletal system when compared to frozen ice cooling pads. Their proper design, however, requires knowledge about heat flow rate from the human body as a function of temperature and location on the body. Accordingly, a measurement device was developed and applied to the measurement of heat flow rate from different locations on the limbs of a male individual. Heat flow rates ranging from 30mW/cm2 @ 25°C to 62mW/cm2 @ 15°C were determined.
