AccuVein Inc., the global leader in vein visualization and creator of the world’s only portable, non-contact vein illumination device, announced today that it will be exhibiting at the Medica World Forum for Medicine Conference being held in Düsseldorf Germany, November 16-19. Medica is the world’s largest and most comprehensive trade fair for medical technology, with an expected 135,000 visitors.
The AccuVein device provides a map of the patient’s vasculature on the skin’s surface to help facilitate access to veins for IV starts and blood draws, thereby adding sight to an otherwise blind procedure. The AccuVein device has been shown to improve first stick success by a striking 350%, reduce pain by up to 59% and reduce procedure time by 78%.
“AccuVein’s leading vein visualization technology is improving patient care and reducing healthcare costs in thousands of facilities around the globe,” said Jeff Schou, V.P. of International Business Development. “Our participation in Medica will help us continue to make inroads in the global healthcare market.”
AccuVein will have its vein illumination technology on display in the U.S. Pavilion, hall 16, booth 16/E40-13. More information about AccuVein and a demonstration of the device in action can be found at www.accuvein.com.
