Abstract
Infrared (IR) radiation emitted by the human body depends on blood flow and volume and subcutaneous circulatory metabolic activity of different human body systems (Thomas, Siahamis, Marion, and Boyle, 1992). IR radiation released through a concrete area of the body is directly related to its temperature. Many years ago, infrared thermography was considered as a valid and non-invasive diagnostic method (Barnes, 1967). Modern equipments make possible very accurate and objective recording of the temperature body surface with a single picture that enables to diagnose different pathologies (Gargiola & Giani, 1990), including some musculo-skeletal problems as the lumbar pain (Pichot, 2001). At the moment, pemaSiP, a working group of the Sports Department of the Universidad Politécnica de Madrid is working on the usage of IR cameras in order to prevent injuries and monitoring the recovery process in elite athletes.
