Title:
INSTRUMENT FOR MEASURING PHYSIOLOGICAL HEAT QUANTITY
Document Type and Number:
WIPO Patent Application WO/2018/139041
Kind Code:
A1
Abstract:
Provided is an instrument for measuring a physiological heat quantity, the instrument comprising a heat flux sensor (2) placed on the surface of a human body, and a calculation unit. The heat flux sensor (2) is provided with a sensor body section (10) in the form of a film, and a moisture absorbing member (14) in the form of a film. The sensor body section (10) has formed therein a plurality of through holes (40) that penetrate through the sensor body section (10) from a first surface (10a) to a second surface (10b). With the first surface (10a) side of the sensor body section (10) as a body-facing side, a sensor signal corresponding to heat flux passing through the sensor body section (10) from the first surface (10a) toward the second surface (10b) is outputted. The calculation unit calculates the physiological heat quantity emitted from the human body on the basis of the sensor signal. Due to this configuration, sweat produced on the surface of the human body can be moved via the plurality of through holes (40) to the second surface (10b) side of the sensor body section (10).
