Device That Shows Where Patient's Veins Are Located Could Be A Game-Changer
August 4, 2015
If you hate needles, this new invention will make sure physicians don't "miss" the next time they need to find a vein.
The VeinViewer uses harmless, near-infrared light to show precisely where veins are located and take the guesswork out of the process.
Designed by Memphis-based company Christie Medical Holdings, the device can find the veins and then project them onto the arm in real time. The special light can be either absorbed by the hemoglobin in the blood, or reflected back by the skin, and it finds veins up to 0.4 inches deep.
Here is a look at it in action:
