AccuVein AV300 Finds Your Veins Without Having To Poke And Prod
Think about how many of us all over the world are poked and prodded every day at the hands of well-meaning, but frustrated, health care workers who are just trying to find a suitable vein for a blood draw or a feeding tube insertion. Poking and prodding... it's yesterday.
The AccuVein AV300 is a portable (10 ounces), non-contact medical device that enables your health care worker to see your veins beneath your skin - very clearly, in 3-D, in fact. A vein-illumination device, all it takes is a point and click of the AV300 and your veins can be located by anyone - you can even see your own veins.

This revolutionary product is already aiding patients and health care workers in 45 countries. It's sure to be a relief for patients, saving pain and bruising, and health care providers, saving time and embarrassment. Here's how it works...
The AccuVein AV300 received a gold award last night at the 2010 Medical Design Excellence Awards (MDEA) held last night. It is well-deserved.
