How it Works…

Infrared measurements of skin temperatures from 90-120 body points are taken before and after exposure to a cool-ambient room temperature. Skin temperatures determined by influences of the nervous system’s innervations to the capillary beds constrict or dilate in response to the cool air. As the nervous system reacts to the cool air, analogous to the ‘fight or flight’ reaction, signals travel from the spinal cord through the regional nerve ganglia that innervate the organs of that region. They continue to the skin’s capillary beds, where temperatures providing organ and tissue health information can be measured. AlfaSight measures the differences between the two temperatures taken before and after the cool air exposure. This data is compared by AlfaSight to a database of healthy patients and reveals deviations that identify patterns that are reflected in easy to understand charts and reports.
