Presently, medical professionals use the rule of nine to estimate the burned area on patients with burned body parts. The rule of nine, as the name implies, divides the body into nine parts and doctors guess what the burned area is in each of these parts. Our web application, Burnize, provides an objective framework through which doctors can measure the burned area or areas on a patient. Using the Monte Carlo mathematical technique and the doctor's input by pointing out first, second and third degree burns, Burnize can successfully estimate the burned area. This is important because it takes the guess work out of the procedure and allows doctors to make decisions based on an empirical method. Our product could allow different doctors to come to the same conclusion because their estimations of burned areas will be similar.
