Multiple linear regression “stepwise” analysis for total volumes of sweat response of the four measured sites with sex, age, BH, BW and BMI
Sweat volume (μl) Forearm (Vt1) Proximal leg (Vt2) Distal leg (Vt3) Foot (Vt4)
(R, R square) (weight = 0.465, 0.216) (weight = 0.436, 0.190) (weight = 0.452, 0.204) (weight; age; sex = 0.556, 0.310)
Non-standardized regression equation Vt1 = −0.216 + 0.017 × BW Vt2 = 0.038 + 0.014× BW Vt3 = −0.175 + 0.017 × BW Vt4 = 0.213 + 0.007 × BW - 0.003 × age + 0.119× gender
Standardized regression equation Vt1 = 0.465 × BW Vt2 = 0.436 × BW Vt3 = 0.452 × BW Vt4 = 0.319 × BW - 0.186 × age + 0.246× gender

Abbreviations: BH, body height; BW, body weight; BMI, body mass index; Vt1, square root of total volume of sweat response recorded at forearm; Vt2, square root of total volume of sweat response recorded at proximal leg; Vt3, square root of total volume of sweat response recorded at distal leg; Vt4, square root of total volume of sweat response recorded at foot.
