Infrared thermography provides a non-invasive and dynamic measure of heat. The thermal preservability effects of a salt footbath were evaluated by the infrared thermography technique. The subjects were 23 healthy college students. Feet were soaked for 10 min in a 40-42 degrees C normal footbath. Room temperature was set at 26.5-28 degrees C. At the same time on another day within 3 days of the normal footbath experiment, the same feet were soaked for 10 min in a 40-42 degrees C salt footbath… Expand

Raynaud's Phenomenon in Vibration Syndrome: The Impact of Cold Feet on Skin Temperature and Vasomotion of the Hand After Immersion in Cold Water
In this test situation, the systemic thermoregulative counterreaction appears to be more important for rewarming of the hand after cooling than a possible synchro nous passive reaction accompanying warming of the feet. Expand
A warm footbath before bedtime and sleep in older Taiwanese with sleep disturbance.
There were no significant differences in sleep outcomes between the two nights, however, when the first two non-rapid eye movement (NREM) sleep periods were examined, the amount of wakefulness was decreased in the second NREM period on the bathing night. Expand
