Hohenstein has developed a new innovative test method for evaluating sleeping comfort using the sweating, thermal manikin. With this method, the entire duvet construction (material use, cut, quilting, body adaption) can be measured and evaluated by simulating use.
Using a thermal manikin, the thermal insulation of the duvet is determined, and classified in one of three thermal insulation classes. Then, using a sweating thermal manikin that simulates a sleeping human, the breathability of the duvet is determined and evaluated.
To determine individual material parameters of the layer construction, e.g. as part of product development, additional tests can be carried out with the Hohenstein skin model according to DIN EN ISO 11092.
