Where has TELER been used

Guy's and St.Thomas' Hospital evaluation

Continuing on from the KCL GLOVE project which ended in 2020, the TELER system is currently being evaluated at GSTT in its day to day treatment of patients suffering from the effects of EB on their hands. The evaluation is also examining if TELER can be adopted for other types of hand trauma patients treated in GSTT.

Dupuytrens GLOVED Project: ongoing

Building on results from the first GLOVE project, GLOVED will implement a new measuring device designed at Cardiff University to measure a patients range of movement for their fingers. The device will automatically take readings and feed those into an app, from which the data is sent to the TELER system and added together the TELER Indicator measurements.

Dupuytrens GLOVE Project: 2020

Kings College London, working with Guy's and St.Thomas' Hospital studied the impact of Epidermolysis Bullosa (EB) on patients' hands.
This study has only just been published and will shortly be updated here with links to the publication.

Wound Healing Project in North East Lincolnshire: 2016

Chronic wounds affect millions of people around the world: a figure that is expected to increase with the rise in patients with diabetes, obesity and an ageing population. The most common chronic wounds in the UK — pressure ulcers, diabetic foot ulcers, and venous leg ulcers.
In 2013 a study was conducted to estimate the health outcomes, resource implications and associated costs attributable to managing wounds. After adjustment for comorbidities, the annual NHS cost of managing wounds was estimated to be £4.5 - 5.1 billion, two-thirds of which is incurred in the community and the rest in secondary care.

TELERWoundcare was developed specifically to provide linked, personalised data on the care of patients moving in a care pathway between and secondary care, and provides the tools and technical support that were required for this project. As a patient note and monitoring application it has capabilities to record and report on wound healing times and patient measured outcomes. Something that has been difficult to capture in NEL

Kings College London WEB Project: 2012

The project tested the hypothesis that certain bespoke garments improve patient wound care experience and reduce time spent on dressing changes, while inhibiting deterioration in a patient’s clinical problems in relation to repeat blistering of the skin and wounds. Epidermolysis Bullosa (EB) is a chronic and lifelong condition, which affects the health of the skin and other organs. At present there is no cure, therefore the care of people with EB is aimed at minimising the impact of the condition and preventing deterioration in physical and psychosocial functioning of individuals with EB.

Eleven TELER indicators were used to measure participant outcomes following the application of the garments. The TELER methodology with clinical outcome indicators was used in the audit and evaluations studies as the indicators provide a measure of the quality of treatment and care against pre‐defined goals.
