If you’re in the hospital, you’re already pretty unhappy about whatever it is that got you there in the first place. And it adds insult to injury when the nurse tries to take blood, or insert an IV, and instead repeatedly stabs you in the arm because she can’t find a vein. A device called the Eyes-On™ Glasses System lets medical practitioners see right through your skin, for a clear view of the vasculature beneath.
Featuring a patented design that incorporates multi-spectral 3D imaging and wireless connectivity, Evena’s point-of-care Eyes-On system is the first vein detection device to deliver clear, anatomically accurate, real-time imaging in a wearable, easy-to-use, hands-free and cart-free system.
Evena’s Eyes-On Glasses include digital storage to enable easy verification and documentation of vein patency throughout a patient’s stay in the hospital, and telemedicine capability to share images remotely. The system also interfaces with hospital electronic medical records systems for seamless documentation.
There is no word on price or availability, though we wouldn’t be surprised to see the system being used in hospitals in the near future.
