A Lite vein locator

A Lite vein locator

Emmanuel Kamuhire




The A-lite vein locator is a non-invasive device designed for paediatric patients whose veins are tough for clinicians to palpate. The device illuminates blood veins to enable clinicians to insert cannulas with high accuracy and minimal failed insertion attempts. The A-lite vein locator saves critical treatment time and reduces the pain associated with finding and inserting a cannula in a proper vein. Moreover, minimizing the number of insertion attempts minimizes the risk of clinical complications such as haemorrhage due to unintended tissue.
