Veineux, launched by a Kochi-based company, is an augmented reality based technology to identify veins easily for intravenous treatment and at a cost lower than in the global market. It works using infra red technology and costs less than half those made in the US and China. There are several issues with identifying veins for injecting medicines or drawing blood samples which get complicated if the vein is that of a child, an obese or aged person or the languid vein of a chemotherapy patient. In such a case, repeated slapping, pressing, warming and palpating the veins with repeated jabs are involved which are often clumsy and painful. This device is expected to make this process easier and affordable for patients and hospitals.
