The thermal hand model system is used for testing various kinds of handwear, for example to perform insulation measurements according to EN 511 standard. The standard requires only 1 measuring zone covering whole hand area (and one zone as a guard at wrist). Having more measuring zones allows, in addition to aquireing only the standard insulation values, detailed feedback on different parts of handwear. Depending on customer needs the number of zones can be discussed.
A similar model as we produce is described in more detail in scientific literature1.
