VeinViewer Projects Images of Veins Directly on the Skin
The VeinViewer by Luminetx is a vascular imaging system that allows physicians, nurses and other healthcare professionals to clearly see accessible vasculature (or lack thereof) in real time. The company will highlight the product at the product at the American Association of Critical Care Nurses Conference May 6-7 in Chicago.
The technology uses near-infrared light to project an image of the veins directly onto the skin. This provides clinicians with a safe, noninvasive technology for clinical treatments and procedures including IV insertions, PICC line insertions, routine blood sampling, blood and plasma donations, and treatment for varicose and spider veins. The technology is safe and makes it even easier for medical staff to keep needle sticks to one attempt.
The company said it began to sell its VeinViewerGS model globally in April.
