The Vein-Eye™ is a hands-free solution that offers superior images of the vein, even in the most difficult patients. The Vein-Eye™ provides real-time video of sub-dermal veins and displays a "runway" image, necessary for IV placements.
The Vein-Eye™ is FDA registered and recently passed the arduous IEC 60601 3rd edition testing. It has the CE Marking and Declaration of Conformity, and sales have begun in earnest. NII sent the Vein-Eye™ prototype to a hospital in the Philippines after their natural disaster. The Vein-Eye™ was used only on the most difficult patients: the very sick, the very young, newborns and those with collapsed veins due to dehydration. The Vein-Eye™ continues to perform magnificently.
Normally, blood circulates to the heart through veins. Veins contain one-way valves. If the valves leak, blood pools in leg veins and they may become enlarged or varicose.
Sclerotherapy involves the injection of a fluid into the veins for the shrinking and elimination of varicose and spider veins. The video shows a California Cardiologist, in real-time, using the Vein-Eye. The difference in the images of the veins in regular daylight, versus the images of the veins with the Vein-Eye, are overwhelming.
Varicose vein surgery, also known as endovenous ablation, uses radiofrequency or laser energy to cauterize and close varicose veins in the legs. It is used for cosmetic surgery and also to alleviate aching, swelling, skin irritation, discoloration or inflammation. Endovenous ablation is safe, less invasive than conventional surgery, and leaves virtually no scars. The Vein-Eye HC has proven to be a remarkable guide for the surgeons to locate, identify, and operate on the varicose veins.
