    Transparent wound sizing tool

    I used to have a couple transparent wound sizing measurement tools that came in a box of something I no longer have or remember what it was. As I recall it was a transparent piece of plastic with a bunch of different size circles printed with their measurements. If this sounds familiar, please let me know what product it was or a source to buy a couple of those measuring tools. Google doesn't seem to be a help to me on this one for some reason Thank you!

    Some of these have been criticized lately because the material stretches, and the measurements may not actually be accurate, but I think these are what you are looking for:

    We stopped using those where I worked several years ago, and went to the use of these when we started using the standardized SCI-PUMT tool for pressure injury assessment:
