Skins IR, is an organisation that provides training programmes, research opportunities and extensive field trips for those who’s topic of study is Infrared thermography, Thermal Biology and Pathophysiology for the Biological Sciences. These include Medical, Sport, Conservation, Ecology, Veterinary, Equine and more.
Who is Skins for?
From Scientists traversing the globe in the act of protecting the planet, preserving wildlife and its habitat, to athletes pushing their boundaries in pursuit of sporting excellence.

The Equine a Passion for Prevention
Thermography is now used in assisted diagnosis for early detection of injury or disease and for monitoring current conditions and the effects of training and aids.
The first definitive studies started on horses conducted by Scientist Dr Ram Purohit at Auburn University in the 1970's. Objectives encompassed a broad range of topics including the most important of them all what is normal, which means determining thermal signature in healthy horses as well as thermal signatures in diseased and injured horses
