Abstract

Chronic wounds such as leg ulcers, pressure ulcers and diabetic ulcers affect many thousands of people in Australia. Chronic venous ulceration is a difficult clinical problem that consumes a large amount of resources. These resources include medical and nursing time as well as cleansing solutions, other topical applications, dressing products, bandages and elastic stockings. Thus, there is a need to develop an accurate and a fully objective database application for wound measurement. We have already developed a software interface written in the .NET languages for the measurement of wounds. The system uses an accurate measurement method capable of detecting small changes in an open wound surface area. With the intention of improving the efficiency of measurement, this paper further describes the development of a relational database to measure the surface area of a wound.
