Physiological Reaction to Tactile Sensation of Silk Fabrics used for Korean Traditional Hanbok
이소영 Lee So-young
The purpose of this study is to suggest quantified data of sensibility measurement by examining the men`s physiological response to the tactile sensation of silk fabrics used for Korean traditional Hanbok and its features. 53 female college students in their 20`s were selected as the objects to estimate tactile sensation of six kinds of silk fabrics so that the adjectives for the sensation might be extracted. Six subjects out of them were randomly selected for measuring their physiological reaction to the tactile sensation. The results are as follows: 1. Factor 1(senses of weight/unevenness), Factor 2(stiffness), and Factor 3(senses of elasticity/moistness) have been extracted from the results. 2. The skin conductance level(S.C.L.), skin temperature, and pulse showed significant differences depending on the tactile stimulations of fabrics, and they were the lowest at the state of no tactile stimulation of fabrics. But, the blood volume pulse(B.V.P) was the highest at the same state and showed no significant differences among fabrics. 3. The S.C.L. was the highest with Yutong, which was followed by Nobangju, Gapsa, Myungju, Shantung and Kongdan. Yutong with its nature of being fluffy, had considerably high S.C.L., and the fabrics coarser and grainer showed higher S.C.L. while those softer and thicker lower S.C.L. 4. The Skin temperature was the highest with Yutong, followed by Nobangju, Gapsa, Myungju, Shantung and Kongdan. Yutong, with its elastic nature, showed high skin temperature. And the crispier and stiffer the fabrics were, the higher the skin temperatures were. 5. The B.V.P was the highest with Myungju followed by Kongdan, Shantung, Yutong, Nobangju and Gapsa. But, there was much variance depending on the tactile stimulations to the subjects. 6. The pulse was the highest with Myungju and Gapsa was also the highest or lower, which were followed by Yutong, Nobangju, Kongdan and Shantung. The moister and the thinner a fabric was, the higher the pulse was.
