In this study, the erythemal ultraviolet exposure received by different parts of the body during four different activities is determined. The measurements were performed during the following activities: walking, sitting, lying and sitting up. The strong dependence of the UV exposure on the activity and on the orientation of the test person is shown. Most of the body parts receive the highest exposure, when the test subject is sitting up or lying. The shoulders are most at risk when the test person is walking, whereas during the activities sitting up and lying the legs are most at risk.
