The aim of near-infrared vein finders is to improve the visibility of veins for medical professionals. They map the veins using near-infrared light reflection. Following that, the returned projection of the received imagery onto the patient’s skin or display on a screen is used.
The apparatus uses near-infrared light (NIR) to illuminate the body and evaluates the light that is reflected back by tissue in the immediate area. Then, to highlight the veins, it projects an image onto the body in real time. Getting a good, clean puncture is significantly easier when the patient’s veins are visualised in front of you.
The image of the subcutaneous veins that is acquired by the infrared vein finder is projected onto the skin’s surface after dealing with the image signal. As a result, an image of a subcutaneous vein will be shown on the skin surface of the relevant position.
Global infrared vein finder market accounted for $XX Billion in 2022 and is anticipated to reach $XX Billion by 2030, registering a CAGR of XX% from 2023 to 2030.
The first smartphone vein locator app ever created was called VeinSeek Pro. It converts a standard smartphone camera into a vein-viewing tool without the use of additional hardware. For the time being, VeinSeek Pro is accessible on the iPhone and other iOS devices everywhere.
The successor to VeinSeek, VeinScanner, has enhanced contrast, zoom capabilities, and simulated infra-red to more accurately mimic the appearance and feel of a specialised vein scanning instrument.
The technology used by VeinSeek Pro is currently also accessible for Android handsets all over the world, although performance is limited because different Android devices have different phone and camera specs.
Work done at the Indian Institute of Science’s Center for Product Design and Manufacturing served as inspiration for several of VeinSeek Pro’s design decisions.
VeinSeek Pro and VeinScanner Pro produce improved images of veins by enhancing the contrast between oxyhemoglobin/deoxyhemoglobin absorption and lowering the amount of superficially-scattered and specularly-reflected light that contributes to the overall image using multispectral imaging principles and the inherent optical characteristics of skin.
To further enhance vein vision, VeinScanner employs additional patented contrast boosting techniques.
