Abstract: The present study aimed to determine the correlations among the arm subcutaneous fat percentage (SFP), arm muscle cross-sectional area (MCSA), arm total cross-sectional area (TCSA), and the difference between core temperature and skin temperature in biceps and triceps areas, measured using thermography. This research focused on a cross-sectional study using a quantitative approach with participants consisting of young, untrained volunteers from the city of Curitiba, Brazil. The total sample size was 20 volunteers including 13 males and 7 females. A statistical correlation between MSCA and core and skin Δ temperature for the right and left biceps (r = -0.487, p = 0.030 / r = -0.518, p = 0.019), and also between TCSA core and skin Δ temperature for the right and left biceps (r = -0.513, p = 0.021 / r = -0.554, p = 0.011) was identified. These results confirmed that arm muscle cross-sectional area influenced skin temperature at the biceps region. This result can also be generalized to ot her areas of the skin, which show similar characteristics to the studied area. (More)
