Table 3 Multiple linear regression “stepwise” analysis for total volumes of sweat response of the four measured sites with sex, age, BH, BW and BMI

From: Sweat output measurement of the post-ganglion sudomotor response by Q-Sweat Test: a normative database of Chinese individuals

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
  1. 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.
