VeinViewer Means no more Poking People Relentlessly to Locate Veins | Internet of Things - Technology focus | Scoop.it
VeinViewer takes the guesswork out of inserting needles into veins, making it easier for medical personnel, and less painful for patients.

Richard Platt's insight:

VeinViewer is a vein finder that uses infrared light to look under the skin and projects an HD image of the veins onto the surface of the skin. There won’t be any miss when the doctors and nurses poke you with a needle next time.  This highly portable device helps hospital staff to immediately locate a vein inside a person’s arm. It can find veins up to 0.4 inches or 10mm deep. The light detects hemoglobin in the blood and then instantly illuminates the intricate network of veins.

The light is totally painless but highly accurate, increasing both first-stick success and patient satisfaction.
