Virtual foot ulcer clinic uses monitoring technology to close vast distances
A virtual multidisciplinary foot ulcer clinic has been established in the Kimberley region of northern Western Australia, using specialist wound monitoring technology from Christchurch company ARANZ Medical to help monitor diabetic foot wounds and reduce the need for patients to travel vast distances to see a specialist.
An inter-agency initiative between primary care provider Boab Health Services, Kimberley Aboriginal Medical Services (KAMS) and Royal Perth Hospital, the clinic aims to ensure clients can be treated for longer in their own community using a multidisciplinary team care approach to help prevent lower limb amputations.
