We read with interest the letter by Kanthraj concerning our research team’s article on telemedical wound care using mobile telephones.1 In the model proposed by Kanthraj, a local health care provider takes digital images of leg ulcers, sends them to a specialized center for automated wound management, and obtains the calculated wound parameters. We agree that this is a challenging concept, which is technically feasible, but we do not agree that this approach is “of vital importance” for telemedical wound care in remote geographic areas.
