Evena Medical, a Roseville, CA firm, is releasing an ultrasound and near-infrared device for vein viewing that clinicians can simply wear like a pair of bulky glasses. The Eyes-On glasses apparently use Epson‘s Moverio technology that displays an image laid over the wearer’s field of view.
The glasses project both infrared light and ultrasound onto the skin, the first for viewing peripheral veins, while the latter for deeper targets such as the femoral vein and artery. The returning images are captured by their respective sensors and turned into an image that’s viewed right over the patient’s skin in real time.
The nurse doesn’t require an extra hand to use the Eyes-On glasses and can quickly move between patients without pushing a cart around.
Here’s a video Evena provided to show off DeepVu wearable ultrasound used within the Eyes-On glasses:
