Limb Volume Measurement

Quite aside from the need to follow the progress of an individual patient, it is becoming increasingly important to be able to measure our success and justify our claims as to the effectiveness of our therapy. Some years ago, I and other MLD therapists were involved in the development of a product called Abacus from Wit's End Solutions Ltd. Designed with our input, and developed by a doctor, this software program allows easy calculation of limb volumes from limb circumference measurements.  The exciting news is that the developer is working on Abacus v2.0, which is expected to be available late in 2016. I understand that the benefits that the new version will bring include better report generation, a new easy to follow interface, better support for those of you working together in clinics, and support for Windows 32 bit and 64 bit operating systems and Apple OSX. I know that the latter has been requested by a number of you, and is an exciting and welcome development. What's more, the developer tells me that further enhancements will follow. Further details can be found on the Wit's End Solutions website.
