Medical examinations of animals can be carried out in an efficient way by applying infrared camera systems. Animal’s body temperature can indicate multiple health problems. These may affect the animal itself, as for instance diseases of the udder or hoof, or they result from animal husbandry, as it is in the case of an incorrect application of saddles causing pressure points and, following, local overheating on horses. Inflammations and lameness are further problems which can be detected with the help of thermography.
The Infratec range of cameras are well equipped to handle the demands for high thermal resolution to give precise measurements that other brands are not able to provide. One such application can be seen in the research article on Evaluation of thermal pattern distributions in racehorse saddles using infrared thermography.
