The main intention of this paper is to eliminate the use of contact wound measurement techniques such as Ruler method, Graph method, Acetate method etc. These techniques, which are usually inaccurate and cumbersome, can cause pain and inconvenience to the patient. The paper mainly focuses on implementing and comparing various image processing and segmentation algorithms to get accurate measurements of the wounds. The second phase of our project concentrates on implementing these measurement algorithms on an android platform. The wound measurement application allows the patients to capture and assess their wounds from their home or work place. The application can be installed in almost all available smart phones.
