ATHENS SCIENCE FESTIVAL 2017
Athens Science Festival 2017, from 29th of March to 2nd of April, 2017
The FAME Laboratory from the School of Exercise Science - University of Thessaly participated in the MEDinART exhibition of the Athens Science Festival 2017. In the framework of the ICI-THROUGH study, we have been specializing in thermal camera measurements. We realized that the result was very interesting but also very impressive. The exhibion of MEDinART of the Athens Science Festival 2017 was a great chance to share this part of work and knowledge through an interactive art event that visualizes the changes in human body temperature using Thermal imaging Technology. During the festival, there were exhibited a wide range of photos of human body temperature changes during several daily activities.
Man working as a turner. The spinning power of the wheel creates such a high temperature that is able not only to melt different materials but also to create an extremely hot environment for the workers.
People working in food industry. Heat exposure of people that work in diverse shifts but in the same working environments, can differ. Some people have to work right next to the fire source for their whole shift!.
Man using protection mask while welding. Even protection devices though cannot prevent the severe results of heat exposure of the workers.
Man working behind a bar. Different kinds of jobs expose the workers to different amounts of heat. Even in jobs that someone would not expect, the effect of the heat is present.
Man working in a mechanical workshop. The constant exposure of some workers to heat can have a severe impact on their health.
