Wellstar’s Holland, Ohio-based subsidiary Trillennium Medical Imaging (TMI) announced the release of two prototypes of the TMI Clinical Camera Design to aid in the early detection of pressure ulcers.

Production should be completed in the month of October as planned. The camera can integrate into any Health Information System (HIS) that uses a barcode for patient identification, get immediate, real time analysis of the images at the bedside, and provide a means of documentation and data storage for the facility. This will provide health care officials with a tool that does the following:

• Determines if a specific anatomic location has patterns of injury associated with the development of a pressure ulcer.
• Provides the nursing staff and physicians with an immediate bedside analysis so that best practices can be implemented to prevent further skin damage and pressure ulcers.
• Provides documentation to the administration that includes data interpretation of the image, time the image was acquired, and a full report analysis that can be attached to the patients’ permanent record.
• Lowers the cost per unit by more than 40 percent to the company, thus giving the company a quicker path to profitability.
• Make the system affordable to most users.
