Paper Abstract

Measurement of uncovered skin surface temperature by measuring the infrared radiation emitted from the skin does not provide useful information about the blood temperature and blood flow. The information obtained from the same measurement for thermally insulated skin is more significant. The skin is insulated by a special device, which permits partial transmission of the infrared radiation through it. Preliminary results show that skin blood flow and under-skin temperature can be assessed from measurements of radiation transmitted through the thermal insulation which was applied to the skin.
