Healthy.io, the creator of smartphone-based urinalysis, has launched its second product line: a digital wound management solution that uses color recognition to track progress.
Using a smartphone app and two calibration stickers, nurses can scan a wound to measure it quickly and effectively. Healthy.io’s FDA-registered technology builds a 3D image and enables comprehensive documentation that can help eliminate human error and discrepancies that creep into more subjective monitoring techniques.
“Nurses, already overextended, are on the front line of wound care and are the real heroes but the tools they are using today haven’t changed in decades,” said Yonatan Adiri, Healthy.io founder and CEO. “We believe this is the heart of the problem and why we have created a solution that will help them accurately track wound progress over time.”
Nurses using the app capture qualitative and quantitative characteristics of the wound, such as location, wound type, pain level, odor and exudate. They can also reference past treatment and photos and create reports summarizing wound progress.
