Wound management is among healthcare’s considerable clinical concerns, with more people living with chronic wounds than the number of people affected by breast, colon, lung cancers, and leukemia combined. Despite their prevalence, accurate methods for assessing chronic wounds and tracking their progression have been slow to develop. This makes it difficult to judge the effectiveness of a given treatment, or make a timely decision to changing a course of treatment. But today, things are changing for the better. Several forward-looking companies are leveraging advanced machine learning technologies to create innovative tools that allow accurate wound area measurements with objective tissue composition analysis.
Alongside, from a diagnostic standpoint, AI is becoming a key driver to early detection and subsequent treatment of a host of health conditions, events ranging from cardiac arrest to wound care. AI-powered apps help patients with chronic wounds identify rashes, measure and analyze wounds. Moreover, with the increasing availabilities of massive data (wound images, wound-specific electronic health records) as well as powerful computing resources, AI-based digital platforms play a significant
role in delivering data-driven care to people suffering from debilitating chronic wounds.
Besides, collecting wound images on every clinical visit, interpreting it, and archiving the data can be cumbersome and time-consuming. Commercial platforms developed to capture images and high-resolution videos filmed on smartphones can now build 3D models of wounds and accurately calculate wound depth through machine learning. These insights provide a wealth of crucial clinical information, such as estimating skin substitutes needed for burn patients.
Highlighting these new developments in the wound care landscape, MedTech Outlook has compiled a list of emerging wound care solution companies that are at the top of their game. The enlisted organizations are transforming the healthcare landscape at the convergence of several disruptive technologies. Besides, the magazine also comprises insights from thought leaders in the sector on the industry trends, best practices, recent innovations, and their advice for aspiring CXOs.
