Thermal Imaging

Canine Case Study

Above are thermal images of a racing greyhound from South Australia. Importantly, it should be noted that the improvements of circulation seen in the subject have been taken in intervals over an 8 hour period. It was noted the subject had an overall body temperature increase of 4.1 degrees celsius.

Case Studies

To the left, there are a number of case studies conducted using Thermal Imaging to outline the benefits of Cycloid Vibration Therapy. Thermal Imaging is used to determine the increase in temperature, which is directly related to the increase of circulation.


Chronic Articular Windgalls

Left image shows the medial right hind before treatment, and the right image shows the same after 10 minutes of wearing the CVT therapy boots. Significantly reduced temperature readings are seen in the area of the windgall and surrounding tissues.

Oedema and Contusion associated with an impact knee injury.

Left image shows the left metacarpus before treatment, the image on the right is after 20 minutes of wearing the CVT therapy massage pad. Significantly reduced heat measurements are seen in the pastern, around the fetlock, and the oedema in the leg is seen to reduce after treatment.

Age-related arthritic changes in knees accelerated in left knee...

A series of images were taken. The first show the knees prior to treatment, the second set immediately after 20 minutes wearing both the massage pad and boots and the third set two hours after treatment. Notes: Immediately after treatment, the temperature readings in both carpi are significantly lower, as inflammation is reduced.

Impingement of the spinal processes (kissing spine), associated nerve dysfunction, pelvic rotation and instability through chronic sacroiliac joint damage.

A series of images were taken. The first shows the back prior to treatment, the second set immediately after 20 minutes wearing the massage pad. Notes: Two views of the same mare pre-treatment. The pelvic rotation is causing muscular spasm on the right side and associated muscular atrophy on the left. Three significantly warm areas are seen on the dorsal line in the saddle area. The first and third of these are clipper marks and can be used to identify the position of the kissing spine post treatment. Kissing spine is shown as a white hot area on the dorsal line, and an associated intersecting horizontal band (called a warm nerve root signature) a result of one or more branches of the spinal chord being compressed. The large warm area over the sacroiliac area is an artifact, where the coat has been clipped. Notes: Two views of the same mare post-treatment. The muscular spasm on the right is markedly reduced, and improved circulation is seen on the left. The warm nerve root signature associated with spinal impingement is reduced post-treatment, and the hot spot directly above the spinal impingement is slightly reduced in significance. As a control, the clip lines remain the same temperature as seen pre-treatment.
