  4. Wallace Rule of Nine – Adults

For adults, a “Rule of Nines” chart is widely used to determine the percentage of total body surface area (TBSA) that has been burnt (10,15,16). The chart divides the body into sections that represent 9 percent of the body surface area. It is inaccurate for children, and should be used in adults only.
