Why use Image Measurement to measure the sizes of wounds?

Shows an image of a wound, grouped under a certain patient. The images and the date captured can be seen to the right.Tests demonstrated that wound margin advance, initial healing rate, percent wound surface area reduction, and wound healing trajectories (all p<0.001) were powerful predictors of complete wound healing at 12 weeks. (Early healing rates and wound area measurements are reliable predictors of later complete wound closure, Advanced BioHealing NY, 2008)

KLONK Image Measurement has been used in research projects for measuring the development in sizes of wounds. The tool has been used in different projects in hospitals in Europe to validate measurements and healing methods. Our software does not only help measuring, but are also focusing on giving a user-friendly way of keeping track of patients and document healing rates.

The photographic method is a more appropriate technique for clean and uncontaminated wounds as contact with the wound bed is avoided, negating the risk of wound contamination, wound bed damage, and patient discomfort.
