The MTS center promotes Thermography as a means of evaluating through the heat the appropriate function of the body and for this purpose it is the first center in Greece that supports Thermohuman which is the most complete thermographic software for human thermal analysis. The use of ThermoHuman technology provides relevant thermal information about the physiological human responses to cold that is very useful for the application of our Manual Therapy System that is based on Mikrasiatiki Trapezountios Therapy (MTs). For MTs infrared thermography can be extremely useful for MTs Therapists as a diagnosis support technology, helping to individualize and adapt the right treatment for the patient.
What is Thermography?
Thermography is a whole body analysis for assessing skin surface temperatures that can be assessed for abnormal physiology. Uses for thermography are similar to that of an oral thermometer, a stethoscope, or any other test that assesses patient function. There are several type of devices used by the thermologist. These include contact sensors, infrared cameras, and point analysis systems. The most technical and advanced system is the infrared thermal camera which is the choice technology of Breast Thermography International and the Professional Academy of Clinical Thermology. Infrared cameras measure radiation in the infrared electromagnetic emission that the human body emits. The sensors on the thermal camera read varying degrees of infrared emittance and through proper calibration, translates it in to a temperature reading. The information is then plotted in a digital format in a color palette. The most commonly used palette is the full spectrum rainbow (ROYGBIV) which shows hot measurements as red and white and cold measurements as magenta and black. These patterns are then analyzed and physiological assessments are made.
The MTS center, through our certified in Thermography therapists that are experts on the use of thermography in Sport and Health applications, in association with our Clinical evaluation application '' Manual Therappist'' will learn you how you should be evaluated before your treatment.
