Wearing and sleep comfort

Textiles such as clothing and bed-linen need to offer consumers a high degree of comfort. To assess the wearing and sleep comfort, the experts in the Clothing Physiology department objectively measure the subjective sensations experienced by the wearer or user of the textile. They test skin sensory functions, "breathability" and the fit of the textile materials. The Hohenstein Institute tests, for example, for compliance with DIN EN 13537 and 13538 (sleeping bags) and DIN EN 31092 and ISO 11092 (physiological effects). The wearing and sleep comfort tests use our own in-house developed skin model and the thermal articulated manikins Charlie, Charlene and Sherlock as well as special skin sensory measuring methods.
