The bedsore patient is an allergic health issue and difficult to doctors and patients, medical advisor system, in depth if the patient living year the population increases. Bedsore patients are common chronic wounds that occur as localized injury to the patient skin out layer and/or underlying tissue usually over a bony prominence, as a result of pressure, or pressure in combination with shear. BEDSOREs range in size and severity of tissue layer affected, with the majority occurring below the waist; particularly vulnerable areas are the sacrum, buttocks, and heels. These factors are common in patients with serious acute and chronic illness and high harmful ratio groups include elderly, medical, cardio/vascular surgical, orthopedic intensive care, end-particular portion terminally ill, long-term care and community care Inflammation in diabetic feet can be early and predictive warning sign for ulceration, and temperature of feet proven to be major factor. Studies have indicated that infrared dermal thermal image processing of foot soles can be one of the important parameters for assessing the risk of diabetic foot ulceration. This work covers the feasibility study of using infrared images, to acquire the spatial thermal distribution on the feet soles. With the obtained infrared images automated detection through image analysis was performed to identify the hyperthermia. Hyperthermia defined that the temperature difference between two feet should not exceed 2.20C. In present work image processing for foot soles of patients with diagnosed diabetic foot complications are acquired before the ordinary foot examinations. Assessment from clinicians and thermal image processing were compared and follow-up measurements were performed to investigate the prediction. A preliminary case study is presented indicating that dermal thermal image processing in proposed setup can be screening modality to timely detect pre-signs of ulceration.
