Abstract:

In this paper, a pressure sensing device for analysing pressure comfort on elastic garments was designed and developed. The device was calibrated and tested on different compression garments for its reliability. This pressure comfort measurement device is used to measure the pressure between the human body and garments. The fabric resistance due to each
and every body movement is noted to evaluate the effect of fabric compression on body muscles in order to assess the pressure comfort for sports persons. The new device proved that elastic garments certainly improve stamina and speed through its quick recovery and lower stress with higher elongation. There is a good correlation found between the pressure
values given by the new sensing device and the Instron tester.
