Two new smart-phone based imaging products, SilhouetteLite+ and SilhouetteLite, recently launched by ARANZ Medical Limited have been adopted by Promore Pharma AB (Solna, Sweden) for a multi-site clinical trial, and by New Zealand’s Capital and Coast District Health Board for their community-based nurses.
Easy-to-use, SilhouetteLite+ and SilhouetteLite apps are highly portable, yet deliver robust accuracy and image consistency. The measurement and documentation data collected is securely synchronized in ARANZ Medical’s proprietary, cloud database, SilhouetteCentral, for ease of analysis and reporting.
Promore Pharma purchased 20 SilhouetteLite+ units for their two-year venous leg ulcer study. Chief Scientific Officer, Dr. Margit Mahlapuu, stated, “The SilhouetteLite+ app and documentation system is easy for us to use across multiple locations. With it, we can ensure that the data we collect at each site is not only consistent and secure, but also easily accessed for analysis and reporting.”
Covering a large geography, Capital and Coast District Health Board (CCDHB) currently uses Silhouette to track patient wound healing in Wellington, New Zealand and surrounding regions. Addressing demand as well as portability, the CCDHB recently added 44 SilhouetteLite+ units for their field nursing staff. The CCDHB Community Services Manager remarked, “We have been using Silhouette for a number of years and have found it to be very useful to keep track of patients’ healing. The new apps give our nurses the convenience to use their mobile devices to securely image and take notes in the field”.
ARANZ Medical CEO, Bruce Davey says, “We design our products with patients and their caregivers at the forefront of our minds. Silhouette enables healthcare providers to easily transition to rapid quantitative wound assessment. The new Silhouette products make field-based assessments easier and the data accessible at the speed of telemedicine, enabling centralized staff to instantly access data and improve the care of their patients.”
