Title: Evaluation Of Textile Materials In Physical Activity
Author: Gasi F.
Abstract: This paper "Evaluation of Textile Materials in Physical Activity" compared how the different properties of fibers, such as cotton and polyamide 6.6, affect the sport performance. The purpose of this study was to evaluate the physical performance improvement during the physical activities due to the use of clothing made of high-technology fabrics. For this comparative study, two raw materials were chosen, cotton and polyamide 6.6, and, through the properties of these samples, the behavior of these fabrics was studied by comparing them. Polyamide 6.6 fabric presented a small loss of body temperature during the physical activity when compared to cotton fabric. The existence of a significant correlation between the body temperature and the lactate index reduction was proved by this study. Such correlation showed the importance of body temperature variation during an activity performance; the lower is this variation, the greater is the reduction in the lactate index. Currently, modified polyamides allow the fabric to interact with human body by emitting an infrared, retarding muscle fatigue and improving skin elasticity. Copyright © 2009, AIDIC Servizi S.r.l.
