Vein Illuminator

A Vein Illuminator or vein viewer is a medical device which helps in visualization of blood vessels. It digitally displays a map of the vasculature on the surface of the skin in real-time.  It facilitates in phlebotomy (drawing blood from patients) and in IV insertions by reducing the number of prick attempts and helping to avoid valves and bifurcations. The commonest cancer treatment, chemotherapy, is mainly given in the form of intravenous infusions and a Vein Illuminator would greatly help to reduce patient discomfort.
