3D WoundCare used to monitor ulcers at Morriston Hospital

A Camera based technology that allows leg ulcers to be remotely monitored is being trialled in Wales.
Developed between Abertawe Bro Morgannwg University (AMBU) Health Board and software company, GPC, the app uses a 3D camera installed on a tablet to take photographs of the wound.
The technology is given to nurses visiting patients and the images are then sent back to the health board to be analysed by specialists, as part of a screening process. This leads to a reduction in unnecessary trips to hospital.
Lorna Tasker, head of rehabilitation engineering at ABMU, said “the software allows us to measure wounds, or pressure ulcers, in a potentially more accurate and repeatable way than we’ve ever had available to us as a NHS service here”.
