Digital Wound Measurement Devices Market: Insurance Coverage, Litigation, and Reimbursement Making It Necessary to Track Wounds

Transparency Market Research has published a new report, titled “Digital Wound Measurement Devices Market – Global Industry Analysis, Size, Share, Growth, Trends and Forecast 2014 – 2020.”  According to the report, in many cases wound area needs to be analysing understood in order to give the required care to that particular area. Understanding and knowing the area also provides a basis for the application of wound dressing, in the sense that it determines the amount of material required as well as measures the progression of the wound healing process. Also, it is a mandatory practice to study the progress of wound healing. In addition to this, the regular tracking of wound size as well as wound measurement is necessary in order to get insurance coverage, reimbursement, and litigation.

While initially surgical scales and rulers were used for wound measurement, today a transparent sheet is used to outline the area which can then be later measured in an area grid map or complex devices are being used today for wound measurement. Despite their high cost as compared to simple devices such as rulers which were used previously, complex devices are  being used today. Although today they are considered as crude and inaccurate but still used in many countries.

In the new world however,  complex devices for the measurement of wound include optical instruments such as structured lighting in order to obtain wound images, and stereophotogrammeter SPG. The images obtained by these devices can be used to make a 3D image by rendering on the computer in order to study them further as well as for the monitoring of wound care. Wound measurement devices are being constantly and the innovation with market players directing all their efforts for a more efficient device.

Handheld computers and smartphones are also being integrated by both complex and simple techniques for wound measurement. In addition to this, laser-based wound terrain identification technology is also being developed for monitoring the real-time 3D image of the wound as well as to track it’s healing rate.

On the basis of geography, North America is leading in the global digital wound measurement devices market. The Asia-Pacific market for digital wound measurement devices will witness higher growth rate on account of the rising geriatric population in China, Japan, and India. The rising incidences of skin ulcers will also boost the market in this region. High growth potential also lies in the Middle East wherein there is a large population suffering from diabetes.

The report profiles leading players within the global digital wound measurement devices market. They are Derma Sciences Ltd, Smith & Nephew PLC, and Medline Industries Inc.
