Survivability and physiological responses to immersion in cold water
Towards a wearable sensor system for continuous occupational cold stress assessment
This study investigated the usefulness of continuous sensor data for improving occupational cold stress assessment. Eleven volunteer male subjects completed a 90–120-min protocol in cold environments, consisting of rest, moderate and hard work. Biomedical data were measured using a smart jacket with...
A user-centred design process of new cold-protective clothing for offshore petroleum workers operating in the Barents Sea
Petroleum operations in the Barents Sea require personal protective clothing (PPC) to ensure the safety and performance of the workers. This paper describes the accomplishment of a user-centred design process of new PPC for offshore workers operating in this area. The user-centred design process was...
The effects of cold environments on double-poling performance and economy in male cross-country skiers wearing a standard racing suit
Purpose: To investigate differences in double-poling (DP) endurance performance, economy, and peak oxygen uptake (V̇O2peak) at low (–15°C) and moderate (6°C) ambient temperatures (TA) in cross-country skiers wearing standard racing suits. Methods: Thirteen well-trained male cross-country skiers perf...
