Healthy adults without a history of medical or surgical problems
Device: Application of a soft patch composed of medical-grade silicone that collects sweat during a subject's natural behaviors.
This device contains sweat sensors embedded in an elastomer and is applied to the skin with a medical grade adhesive.
- Adhesion of device underwater [ Time Frame: 2 hours ]Percentage of devices which remain adhered during >1 hr swim trials
- Correlation between local and global sweat loss [ Time Frame: 2 hours ]Percentage agreement of local sweat rate with body weight loss
