ThermoHuman: Plug & Play

ThermoHuman: Plug & Play

28/06/2023 Infographics

ThermoHuman software allows you to capture thermal images directly from the application using a controller (plug and play), saving time and streamlining reports.

Connecting the camera through the USB-C ports (plug and play) allows you to capture thermographic evaluations directly from your ThermoHuman account.

To do this, you will need a computer with a Windows operating system. This requirement, along with the need for an internet connection, are the only essential prerequisites to perform real-time analysis of athletes or patients.

Once the evaluation space is set up, preferably with a marked step on the floor, and the setup with the tripod and camera is positioned in front of the subject, at a distance of about 2-3 meters, you can connect the camera to the computer using a USB-C to USB-C cable or a USB-C to standard USB cable. The computer must have the ThermoHuman controller installed, which is a file that can be downloaded from the application’s help menu.

How to Plug & Play using ThermoHuman Software

With everything set up, you can proceed to real-time capture by accessing either individual or group analysis from the software account.

By clicking on the camera-shaped button, you will access the evaluation menu where, in the top right corner of the protocols, you will find a message to connect the camera and access real-time capture: as a plug and play (Figure 1).

Once the camera is detected, click on the desired protocol for evaluation, and you will enter the subject’s view position. Whether by pressing the spacebar on the keyboard or clicking on the center of the protocol (the orange camera button), the thermographic image will be captured and processed instantly, segmenting the body regions.

Finish the collection process and save the report.

These steps can be performed for as many protocols as you want to capture. With all the segmented protocols, you can save the evaluation and access either the individual or group report, depending on the selected analysis mode. You can select “prevention,” “fatigue,” or “free mode” views to configure the most suitable report, which can be exported as a PDF or sent via email.

In total, analyzing and generating a report for an athlete can take less than 30 seconds, for example, when analyzing the legs.

Europa Thermohuman ThermoHuman has had the support of the Funds of the European Union and the Community of Madrid through the Operational Programme on Youth Employment. Likewise, ThermoHuman within the framework of the Export Initiation Program of ICEX NEXT, had the support of ICEX and the co-financing of the European Regional Development Fund (ERDF).

CDTI Thermohuman has received funding from the Centre for the Development of Industrial Technology (CDTI), in participation with the European Regional Development Fund (ERDF), for the R+D activities involved in creating a new tool, based on thermography, for the prediction and prevention of rheumatoid arthritis.
