Abstract

This paper presents an integrated System for Tibia Open Fractures (STOF), based on web and mobile phone applications. A rapid prototyping method was followed based on Adobe Fireworks CS3. The database is developed in SQL Server 2008. The application is created in Microsoft Visual Studio 2010 Ultimate, using ASP.NET programming language. A system that includes an online database and a smart phone application for recording, monitoring and studying patients with tibia open fractures is developed. STOF is designed to be doctors-friendly using classifications and knowledge grouping specialized for tibia open fractures.
