-Max: it is the temperature at which an adult man (determined for a 70 kg) can sleep without being too hot to the point of sweating.

Comfort: the temperature at which a woman (determined for a 60 kg woman) sleep at ease

-Limit: this is the lowest temperature at which an adult man (70 kg) is at the limit of feeling cold.
