Abstract

Chronic wounds are a large part of daily medical practice, and are an increasing focus of research. As the number of modalities to treat chronic wounds increase, the validity of these modalities must be tested. A low cost laser imager was designed and fabricated for the measurement of wound geometry. The accuracy of the imager was validated using simulated wounds of known geometry. Perimeter, area, and volume measurements were compared with conventional measurement techniques on wound models simulated on plaster mockups of the lower leg and foot.
