The quick answer is yes and no. Yes, much of what they recommend is valid
for all measurement methods. No, they were written
for open-chamber instruments and the AquaFlux is different. If you want
the long answer, read on.
There are two published guidelines for TEWL measurement in general [1, 2], and one for TEWL measurement in non-clinical settings . Guidelines [1, 2] consider open-chamber instruments only. Guidelines  consider both open-chamber and unventillated-chamber instruments. But none of these publications included any AquaFlux measurements.
Guidelines [1, 2] discuss (a) person-linked variables, (b) environmental
variables and (c) instrumental variables in some depth before presenting
their recommendations for best practice. Most of the considerations
of sections (a) and (b) are valid for all methods of measurement. The
exceptions are section (a) of , where the discussion
of skin surface temperature includes consideration of how this may
affect the measurement probe, and section (b) of both both publications, which
include discussions of air circulation and how this may cause
fluctuations in open-chamber measurements. Neither of these are concerns
for the AquaFlux. Section (c) and elsewhere is instrument-specific
and not applicable to the AquaFlux.
The table below presents a side-by side comparison of the recommendations
of these guidelines with what we recommend for
