Frequently Asked Questions

What clinical and organizational benefits am I likely to see on adopting Silhouette?

Our customers say that the key benefits of Silhouette include:

  • Reduced admissions to acute care facilities and associated waiting times at acute care facilities
  • Increased levels of patient satisfaction and engagement in their treatment
  • Improved quality, consistency and a reduction in errors in clinical wound-care documentation
  • A reduction in the incidence of reportable pressure ulcers
  • A reduction in the length of stay and total cost of care because of measurements that allow evidence-based treatment decisions to be made
  • Mitigation of litigation risk through the regular and thorough documentation of wounds as they heal, which include images.

What are the key parts of the Silhouette wound assessment and management system?

In its simplest form, Silhouette consists of a single endpoint comprising of the:

  • SilhouetteStar camera, which has been specifically designed as a medical device for wound imaging
  • SilhouetteConnect clinical application, running on a Windows-based computing device

We recommend our Enterprise system for organizations wishing to run multiple Silhouette end-points, to centralize their wound information storage and integrate with their EMR system.

In addition to each Silhouette endpoint, the Enterprise solution consists of the:

  • SilhouetteCentral centralized data store, which runs on a server, and to which SilhouetteConnect endpoints connect
  • SilhouetteLink, which provides the interface to transfer information to and from your EMR.

How easy is Silhouette to use?

Silhouette is very easy to use, the user simply:

  • Selects or creates a patient in the software
  • Photographs each wound—by positioning the camera above the wound until the laser star forms and then clicking the shutter button
  • Traces each wound—then the system automatically calculates all the key measurements
  • Adds as many notes as they require into our extensive notes fields that sit alongside the wound image
  • Transfers the report to the EMR if required.
