Experimental: Research arm
Other: clothing type, protective garments of Paul Boye Technologies
The experiment aimed at evaluating the physiological stress obtained when dressed in different clothing (NBC protective garment [charcoal base], combat garment and 2 different types of work uniforms- (1)50% cotton and 50% polyester (2)80% cotton and 20% polyester) and during exertion under heat conditions.
- physiological strain (composite) [ Time Frame: 10 days for each participant ]The physiological strain will be determined by body core temperature and heart rate of the subjects during a heat tolerance test (HTT).
- Rectal temperature [ Time Frame: 10 days for each participant ]The rectal temperature will be monitored by a rectal thermistor during each heat tolerance test (HTT).
- Skin temperature [ Time Frame: 10 days for each participant ]The skin temperature will be monitored by skin thermistors located at 3 sites (chest, arm and leg).
- Heart rate [ Time Frame: 10 days for each participant ]The heart rate will be monitored using a wearable heart rate monitor (Polar® sensor and heart rate monitor watch).
- Sweat rate (composite) [ Time Frame: 10 days for each participant ]Sweat rate will be calculated from the patients' body weight and fluid balance.
