Abstract
Purpose - The purpose of this paper is to analyze the Corona discharge films (CDFs) taken from the fingertips of human subjects who had contact for a long period of time with two sets of clothes, in order to establish in what way a long period of contact with textiles influences life's parameters: the heart beat (HB), the blood pressure (BP), and the volunteers' level of comfort. Design/methodology/approach - Three volunteers took part in the experiments. They were placing a fingertip in the area of a strong electrical field of high voltage (10 kV) and high frequency (1,024 Hz) to register a CDF. A digital camera placed within the area of Corona discharges records this phenomenon. Findings - The paper finds that there is no statistical difference between the parameters of a CDF taken from the fingertips of volunteers after 5 h of wearing two sets of clothes. There is a connection between the level of comfort of the volunteers and their CDF. Originality/value - The CDF shows the consequence of the different factors, impact on human subjects. The authors are moderate in their opinion about the influence of extreme textiles-related feelings.
