|Thermography||Other: Infrared thermography|
Infrared thermal image allows detecting object´s temperature visually in a non-contact way. That makes the technique useful for different applications like in construction/ building, ecology, industry and medicine. Evolution of thermographic equipments makes it more accessible. It is a non- contact, non- invasive technique that helps researchers monitoring body temperature. So that, it is used to investigate ocular, liver, kidney and brain diseases, dental diagnosis, breast cancer detection or even sports injuries.
It is increasing the use of thermographic imaging in podiatry, so the main trials concerned to diabetes mellitus, vascular disorder or dermatological applications.
Nevertheless, there is little known about children´s foot temperature. Main studies are related to core temperature or variations in temperature among different parts of the body of enfants.
In consequence, the investigators found a lack of information related to such a significant topic, not only for podiatrists, but also for population in general.

Children's feet temperature
The thermal images were taken from 162 children who were 9- 10 years old in two schools in Mérida (Badajoz), Spain. Their parents or legal guardians were informed and signed an informed consent. All children were taken infrared images, so that skin temperature was evaluated, by dividing the thermograms in regions of interest in dorsal and plantar images of each foot. Shoes were divided into two regions of interest. The measures were taken in two different days: the first day, children wore school footwear and the second sports shoes.
