Subsequently the team has achieved the following progress with adoption of this digital technology:

  • During 2014/2015, KCH Diabetes Foot Clinic has gone live with implementing digital wound imaging, 3D wound measurement and electronic data capture in their routine out-patient clinic for managing patients with diabetes foot ulceration. 
  • The team is using the digital wound assessment approach to support clinical decision making, treatment planning, documentation and capture of clinical activity and DFU outcomes data.
  • An update on the team's experience and results has recently been presented at the SAWC Spring 2015, EWMA London May 2015 and ISDF The Hague Netherlands May 2015.
