Wound Measurement Tool
The Woundometer instrument has been developed to measure the wounds of patients in the health care setting. The device was designed to accurately measure the wounds of patients while providing important data to physicians.
The Woundometer may be used to measure the length, width, depth, and undermining of wounds. The Woundometer may be used once per patient visit and should be properly disposed of after each measurement session.
PURPOSE OF USE
- WOUNDOMETER, when properly used, offers accuracy and consistency in wound measurement. This is critical in determining treatment and in evaluating the healing process and wound deterioration.
- WOUNDOMETER is inexpensive and easy to use, even where wounds are irregular in shape and cover uneven body surface. WOUNDOMETER use results in little or no discomfort to the patient.
- WOUNDOMETER provides a basis of evidence of wound size when pictured in place by a time-stamped camera.
WOUNDOMETER is indicated for use in measuring wounds to the body surface resulting in a puncture, cut, scrape, or tear. It is also indicated for use in measuring wounds resulting from pressure ulcers or from dehiscence following surgical suturing.
The use of this device is contraindicated for use in measuring burns, rash, or other abrasions not resulting in a puncture, cut, scrape, or a tear. This device is contraindicated for use in measuring surgical incisions other than those experienced in dehiscence.
