Abstract: Various examples are provided related to identification of anthropometric information for fitting of compression garments. In one example, a method of generating compression garment fit information includes acquiring images including a selected body part or body area in need of compression therapy; processing the acquired images along with a library of compression garment fit information; generating a 3D reconstruction of the selected body part/area; deriving anthropometric information for the selected body part/area from the 3D reconstruction; providing a compression value corresponding to a prescribed or intended amount of compression therapy applied to the selected body part/area; and generating compression garment fit information for the selected body part/area.
Abstract: The present invention comprises methods for detecting, monitoring and treating lymphedema by using imaging devices to generate patient anatomical information from which body part volume measurements or geometries can be derived. Yet further, the present invention comprises methods of fitting compression garments for treatment of lymphedema by using the anatomical measurements derived from the patient anatomical information.
