Manufacturer Releases New Technology To View Patient’s Veins

pojnbvdghji87y

Christie Medical Holdings’ has announced the VeinViewer Flex, the first portable offering in the company’s VeinViewer line. The new device’s reduced size and battery operation make it possible to use VeinViewer technology in home care settings and blood centers for the first time.

The VeinViewer technology projects an image of a patient’s blood vessels directly onto the skin in real time by detecting their location using near-infrared light, and is used to aid in needle placement.

From the press release:

Flex, a hand-held version of VeinViewer, is designed to provide non-acute markets with the exclusive clinical capabilities of VeinViewer in a form that meets the stringent demands for durability and portability. Flex is designed to the same TrueView vein-width accuracy specifications of its predecessor, VeinViewer Vision, and is currently under testing. Additionally, Flex will feature a new software option, MaxBright, which boosts existing VeinViewer brightness by another 40 percent, making Flex one of the brightest near-infrared vein illuminators on the market. Flex is designed to be real-world durable meeting IEC/UL 60601-1 drop test standards. Christie expects to begin selling Flex later this fall.
