Abstract

In general, blood flow in the human body is significantly impacted by gravity; thereby resulting in thermo-physiological effect. In the present study, we modeled and formulated the effect of gravity on blood flow for each body part, depending on the body posture. We added the gravity term to the segmented two-node model; whereby skin temperature was calculated. This value agrees well with the results of the human subject experiment.
