Child Thermal Manikin

Measure the thermal properties of children's clothing, accessories, and indoor environments.

High technology in a child-size package

Researchers and testing labs now have the ability to evaluate children’s clothing using the same thermal comfort standards currently used for adult garment evaluation. Thermetrics' “Sonny” and “Timmy” child thermal manikins were developed using advanced CAD digital modeling to meet the average body dimensions of an 8-year old or 10-year-old child. Both manikin systems feature a 15-zone thermal heating architecture and are available with our popular sweating skin and walking motion stand accessories.

Complete turn-key system for clothing and environmental comfort testing

The Child thermal manikins are jointed at the shoulders, elbows, hips, knees, and ankles and feature the same capabilities and functionality as our adult-sized “Newton” manikin system. All Thermetrics manikin systems include a Dell laptop PC with our exclusive ThermDAC control software for full thermal control, real-time data display, data logging capabilities, fault detection, and diagnostics, helping to keep your research on track, on schedule, and on budget.
