  • 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… CONTINUE READING
