Lead by the results of our previous work, in which we designed the sweat glands prototype according to AM (Advanced Manufacturing) requirements, in this study we aimed to integrate the previously manufactured channels into a stereolithography (SLA)-manufactured module, in order to avoid support structures inside the channels and the model cavities. That was achieved by distributing the channels in the manner which approximates the sweat glands distribution on an equivalent real body part and to be able toadjust the sweat quantity, to the estimated sweat rates found in the literature. The manufactured module has integrated humidity and temperature sensors, which will allow an accurate quantitative assessmentof the thermoregulation of the individual modules and the sweat glands prototype as a whole.
