Smartphone app will aid in wound care
from McKnight's Long-Tern Care News & Assisted Living
An app for wound care? Yes, one is coming soon. The National Science Foundation recently awarded $1.2 million to the Worcester Polytechnic Institute to develop a smartphone app that helps people with advanced diabetes and foot ulcers manage their care better. The proposed application would be installed on a smartphone and integrated wirelessly with a personal glucose meter and scale. The application would track and archive blood sugar levels and weight, and use the phone's camera to capture and analyze images of lesions known as foot ulcers, which are potentially dangerous complications that affect people with advanced, uncontrolled diabetes.
