About this book

This book addresses the application of infrared thermography in sports, examining the main benefits of this non-invasive, non-radiating and low-cost technique. Aspects covered include the detection of injuries in sports medicine, the assessment of sports performance due to the existing link between physical fitness and thermoregulation and the analysis of heat transfer for sports garments and sports equipment. Although infrared thermography is broadly considered to be a fast and easy-to-use tool, the ability to deliver accurate and repeatable measurements is an important consideration. Furthermore, it is important to be familiar with the latest sports studies published on this technique to understand its potential and limitations. Accordingly, this book establishes a vital link between laboratory tests and the sports field. 


About the authors

Jose Ignacio Priego Quesada is a researcher with the Physiology Department of the University of Valencia and thermographer of level 1 by the Infrared Training Center. He is also a researcher of the Research Group in Sport Biomechanics (GIBD). Previously has been working for two years with a research grant in the Biomechanics Institute of Valencia (IBV). His research topics of interest are the use of infrared thermography in sport assessment, cycling biomechanics, sport biomechanics and footwear assessment. In 2015, he has been awarded as the best poster presentation at the XIII Congress of the European Association of Thermology.
