Sport garments and their properties directly influence the heat exchanges occurring at the
interface between the human skin and the environment. Active skin cooling or warming
through innovative apparel is more and more developed in training and competition. Infrared thermography can provide original insights into the patterns of skin temperature distribution during exercise that can then be used for clothing design using a bodymapping approach.
