Wound Imaging & SmartDrawTM
Accurate, consistent and regular measurement and imaging of a wound is vital in objectively describing the progress of wound healing. Tracking wound size can assist in selecting and modifying treatment regimens. Documentation of skin breakdown, ulcers and wound size is also important in terms of insurance coverage and litigation. It is standard practice to include monitoring the size of the wound at regular intervals. Wound measurement systems range from simple tape measure to complex imaging equipment. To be clinically useful, wound measurement systems should be accurate and reproducible, permit quick assessment, use any camera, minimize the potential for contamination, and be cost-effective.
