Under the same conditions, 11 employees were bathed for 5 minutes at a water temperature of 42°C and a flow rate of 7.1 L/min in order to understand the change in body surface temperature when using SHIN-ON and when using a hand shower. , Thermography of changes in body surface temperature from before bathing to 10 minutes after bathing showed that when SHIN-ON was used, the entire upper body warmed up immediately, and the body surface temperature was kept high and the warmth lasted. I understand that you are. In addition, when we measured changes in core body temperature (sublingual temperature), core body temperature continued to rise after bathing when using SHIN-ON than when using hand shower, and core body temperature decreased 15 minutes after the start of bathing. It was difficult to maintain, and it was confirmed that the warmth was maintained even after the passage of time. Furthermore, in order to obtain subjective data from users who actually used the SHIN-ON and hand shower, we conducted a questionnaire to quantify the thermal sensation before and after bathing. It turned out that ON people felt warmer than the constant hand shower from immediately after bathing to 15 minutes after bathing. Also, with the hand shower, there were always more “cold” answers than the median “neither”, whereas with SHIN-ON, many answers were always “warm” after bathing.
