Integral mapping of the sweat-gland activity using differential thermography technique

Background and Objectives: The sweat-gland activity is associated with the functional state of small sympathetic nerve fibers that are subject to destructive changes in a amount of pathologies, for example, such as diabetic peripheral neuropathy and rheumatoid arthritis. In this work, we have solved the problem of visualizing sweat pores on the skin surface using dynamic differential thermography.

Detection of the Single Sweat Glands Activity Via the Macro Thermography Techniques and Its Relation with Skin Temperature and Peripheral Hemodynamics

Background and Objectives: Interest in the study of the human’s sweat glands activity is due to the close relationship of their activity with human body’s peripheral regions sympathetic innervation. The increased activity of sweat glands and secretion occurs not only due to thermoregulation, but also is a response to the psychoemotional load and the physiological and drug tests. Sweat gland activity’s disruption manifests itself in pathologies such as diabetes mellitus, chronic heart failure, hyperhidrosis, thyrotoxicosis, and Parkinson’s disease.
