Sometimes new nurses are scared to give shots to their patients for the reason that they might fail to find the right vein on their arm. Not anymore, because Luminetx created the VeinViewer to help physicians, nurses, and other healthcare professionals to clearly see the veins of their patients in real time directly on the surface of their skin. This unique gadget uses a mixture of infrared light together with patented technologies that are capable of producing an image of vascular structures. This device was recognized by Time magazine as one of the most innovative medical inventions of the year.
