Abstract: Over the past few decades there has been an upsurge in the development of monitoring devices that estimate levels of thermal strain non-invasively. However, developing a non-invasive monitoring device that estimates body core temperature (Tc) with a certain level of accuracy that is satisfactory over multiple heat stress scenarios and a wide range of body core temperatures has been shown to be a difficult task [1]. The aim of this study was to investigate the potential of using a combination of simple non-invasive measures to estimate rectal temperature (Tre) (used as a reference for Tc) over multiple types of heat stress scenarios within a varied population.
