Description of intervention(s) / exposure
Assessment of oxygen tension of skin adjacent to wound using TCM400 (Radiometer Pacific, Copenhagen Denmark). This will be measured upon initial contact, then re-measured 4 weeks later. At the same time, wound size will also be measured and healing rate will be calculated.

Summary
Brief summary
The study aims to measure skin oxygen tension of skin adjacent to chronic wounds and assess whether low oxygen tension occurs in wounds that have delayed healing. If there is a relationship, this measurement device may be used as a screening tool to identify those people who require additional therapies in order to improve healing rates.
