Research on measurement method of dressing contiguous senseAuthor(s): Cai-Yuan Kuang, Guo-Lian Liu
The sense arising from the contact between fabrics and skin is the key factor influencing comfort of dressing. In this paper, based on the analysis of fabric contiguous sense evaluation methods and devices, the experimental paradigm of cognitive behaviors to study the cognitive activities in the contiguous sense cognition of the tested linen fabric is introduced. The experimental program is written with E-Prime 2.0, while the expression of the experimental stimulus material is realized with the self-made dressing contiguous sense measurement device, which output the senses of itch, roughness and smoothness among the fabric contiguous sense. The results show that the evaluation values of the senses of urtication, roughness and smoothness differs little, and can distinguish the intensity of the contiguous senses of 8 fabrics fully. There is no obvious difference among the evaluation values of contiguous senses of those fabrics, indicating a fact that it is scientific and reasonable to study the evaluation of contiguous senses of fabrics with the self-made dressing contiguous sense measurement device combined with the introduction of behavioral experimental paradigm.
