Beating bedsores: Researchers working on 3-D method to aid treatment

from U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs

VA researchers are developing a new instrument for measuring bedsores, using 3-D cameras, tablet computers and algorithms, to help treat the problem in Veterans with spinal cord injuries. Investigators at the James A. Haley Veterans' Hospital in Tampa, Florida, are testing an innovative computer-based system designed to more accurately measure bedsores, also known as pressure ulcers. Accurate measurement of the wound, followed by optimal treatment, is key to preventing it from worsening. more
