"The AV300 enables healthcare professionals to see a vein map on the skin, which represents an exciting medical innovation striving to improve the time, comfort and cost of care," said Stephen P. Conlon, President of AccuVein. "Furthermore, we've found that patients respond positively when they can see a display of their veins for these procedures, so we expect that the AV300 will contribute to increased patient satisfaction -- a priority in the healthcare community."
Weighing only 10 ounces, the AV300 uses point-and-click technology -- the healthcare professional simply presses a button and positions the device above the patient's skin to display a map on the skin of underlying veins. With a range of hands-free options, the AV300 can quickly switch between a hand-held and hands-free mode, freeing the practitioner's hands to perform the venipuncture.
