Abstract:

Electromyography (EMG) and electroencephalography (EEG) methods were used to evaluate the reaction of human skin to tactile stimuli evoked by textiles. The peak value of the EMG and energy percentage of the weave of the EEG when the subjects came into contact with 9 kinds of fabrics were selected for tests and next clothing was made on their basis. They were utilized as two important evaluating indexes. Statistical analysis was carried out to verify the correlation between the data obtained from objective measurements and the subjective measurements. The results showed that when the subjects came into contact with thicker, heavier and stiffer fabrics, the peak values of the myoelectric potential induced were higher. When clothing with a higher mass density was worn, energy percentages of the weave at both the left and right occipitalia were higher.
