Veinspy™ is a portable vein finder for easy visualisation of veins in adult, pediatric, geriatric, obese and dark skin patients with difficult venous access.
It works on transverse illumination technology: light beams from a circular LED array penetrate the skin and act as a light source to achieve deep illumination of subcutaneous tissues.
The veins in the illuminated area absorb the light and become prominent as dark lines.
The Veinspy™ device consist of two sets of coloured LEDs: one set emits orange light optimal for superficial veins, another set emits red light to find deeper veins.
Advantages of the Veinspy™:
– reduces multiple needle prick and improves site selection for needle insertion
– no treatment delay due to difficult venous access
– reduces patient pain due to needle insertion
– increases patient comfort, avoids hematoma
