What’s the difference between a digital camera and inserting a needle into a vein? The former is simply ‘point and shoot’ whereas the latter is much more complicated than that. It isn’t just ‘point and shoot’ and may require a number of attempts before success is achieved however, this trial and error method is actually painful for the patient. Well science can’t just stand aloof of this pain and therefore we have a solution to this problem.
The best part is that unlike other glasses out there which include 3D glasses and smart glasses, these medical glasses can be worn while you have your regular glasses on. The principle working idea is to make use of ‘multi-spectral 3D imaging’ to pop up veins when being viewed using the medical glasses. The glasses come with dual cameras, Bluetooth, Wi-Fi, 3G, two speakers which are built in and a separate microprocessor which is worn on a belt.
These glasses are expected to be made available by the first quarter of the next year and we are hoping that they would prove to be great success in hospitals.
