A-Lite Vein Locator

3rd Generation Prototype

Our innovation delivers a unique and innovative vein imaging technique that increases first needle success while costing a fraction of other similar products.

2nd Generation Prototype

In order to ensure safe intravenous cannulation to these children, assistive biomedical devices are necessary, but existing interventions are generally not well positioned for the context and situation at hospitals in low resource settings.

Vein-Locator Background

From our clinical site visit at Holy Innocents Children’s Hospital, we realised that improving the safety of intravenous cannulation among patients requiring emergency care is a big challenge that has been neglected.

Description

The A-Lite vein locator

The A-Lite vein locator provides easy access to patient veins and reduces the number of attempts and duration needed to obtain venous access in difficult cases.

More About Us

About 20% of patients experience mild to an intense fear of needles which stimulates the sympathetic nervous system and triggers vasoconstriction and vasovagal reactions, making an I.V. start more difficult in these patients.

If this product goes through the clinical trials, it will be a win for the community.

“Nurse, I hope you’re good at this; they always have trouble with my veins.”
This is the last thing you want to hear when you approach a patient to insert a peripheral intravenous (IV) catheter, but it’s an all-too-common complaint.

Venous access among children is difficult for all cadres of practitioners.
