I read with interest the article by Braun et al1 published in the recent issue of the ARCHIVES. Their study has established the feasibility of telemedical wound care using mobile technology. To deliver the appropriate telemedical wound care to remote geographic areas, wound measurement is of vital importance and aids in the scientific assessment of the progress of treatment. Wound measurement was not the focus of their article.
