Example text

In case of any deformation, the Meissner’s corpuscles cause an action potential in the nerve. As these are quickly adapting mechanoreceptors, the action potential generated in the nerves decreases rapidly and ultimately ceases. Due to this action the wearer stops feeling his clothing after certain time. Due to their superficial location in the dermis these mechanoreceptors are particularly sensitive to touch and vibrations, but they cannot detect properly because they can only sense that something is touching the skin [9].

It is observed from Fig. 5 that touch sensation dropped consistently, initially at slower rate and then at very fast rate. On the other hand the prickle sensation, evoked by pain, temperature and fabric, initially increases and then drops rapidly. The touch sensation is completely lost after about 20 min, but prickle sensation remained until about 40 min and the point of complete anesthesia starts [5, 13]. 5 Time course of loss of prickle and touch sensations [5]. A number of studies [14, 15] have been carried out to understand the prickle characteristics of fabrics.
