Veinus

The Veinus displays vein map of a man’s hand during the pilot at St. John’s Hospital, Bangalore.

A Bangalore-based startup has developed India’s first vein detector, ‘Veinus’, a non-invasive device that could help doctors locate good veins for inserting venous cannula. Veinus is likely to cost about 80% less than the imported vein detectors. Better cannulation with the help of Veinus may mean less number of needle pricks for millions of patients worldwide.

According to a report, even though venous cannulas are often needed for a week or more, they frequently fail before the end of treatment because of irritation of the vein and therefore necessitate cannula removal and replacement. Replacement requires additional needle pricks for patients, increases work for clinical staff, and contributes to insertion of cannulas being the most common invasive medical procedure and therefore a substantial contributor to healthcare costs.

In a step to aid this medical procedure, Bangalore-based Infraeyes Private Limited developed Veinus, a vein detecting device that uses infrared light to display map of good, thick, as well as thrombosed veins under the skin.

Founded in 2011 by Priyank Saxena, 38, along with Mayank Saxena, his brother, and  Saurabh Gupta, Infraeyes now has a team of six engineers who have contributed in  making Veinus. The device is set to be launched in the market this month (July  2014). Read full report on Page 2

The storage in your phone has a bigger effect on your apps than you might think. The latest smart phones and tablets at the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas last month came with an emphasis on faster processors and compatibility with faster wireless networks. But new research shows that the biggest performance bottleneck with popular smart-phone apps such as Facebook and Google Maps is, in fact, how fast they can read and write a device’s data storage. The results suggest that without changing how mobile gadgets store data, the benefits of new networks and processors will be limited. Read more
