ICETD stands for International Center for Equine Thermographic Diagnostics. We have been providing training in thermographic examinations for (mainly) horses since 2009. Founder of ICETD, Hans Arendse, started in 2003 with the development of this research method. As a blacksmith he regularly ran into problem horses that had clear or vague complaints. Investigations yielded nothing and then you as farrier are supposed to be able to do this. He became acquainted with thermography via the EMC in Rotterdam where this technique was applied to the pain management department. Nice detail (and a nice reference) is that we gave our training at the EMC in 2012 in the rehabilitation therapy department. In this department the thermography is applied humane by physiotherapists.
After a number of years of study, the technique in horses was finally introduced in 2008, and today, thermographic research in horses is the first choice for many owners when the horse is faced with problems.
We are currently working on a modern, digital training, where we want to offer the lessons modularly with the help of clear videos. During the study the student can communicate directly with the trainers via skype. In the middle of 2018 e.e.a. will have to be completed.
If you have any questions, please feel free to contact us, we will be happy to inform you.
