The human factors of clothing range from the physical and psychological impact of "wearing" to the memory and decision-making required to manage a wardrobe. This talk will explore current research at the University of Minnesota's Wearable Technology Lab, including development and analysis of techniques for garment-integration of technology for rehabilitation and spaceflight applications, and investigation of the variables and strategies at play in management of the home wardrobe.
