Medical Silhouette to measure wounds ways to improve wound assessment

The global cost of wound care is high and increasing, leading
medical specialists and institutions to seek more efficient and
accurate ways to improve wound assessment.

Such information is essential to enable more informed patient management decisions
to be made. Imagine an intelligent system that quickly obtains accurate
measurements of area and depth of a wound with no patient
contact. And then this system builds that information
into an electronic patient record for printing, electronic distribution,
and archiving. Information about the wound’s measurement
history is available so the serial progression of the wound
status is also calculated and presented. This information is
stored in a consistent method to a robust database. Data
can be shared with other hospital information systems using
international protocols for medical data interchange. And
because,inevitably, the clinician is pressed for time, most of this
process is automated.

Through the intelligent use
of technology, the ARANZ
Medical SilhouetteTM
Suite achieves this in a easy-touse
set of products designed
specifically for wound care
