X-Ray Glasses Medical Advancement

Let’s face it: Only masochists like getting shots when they go to the doctor’s office. Not only are you stabbed with a long needle, but doctors and nurses often have to try more than once in order to hit a vein. Evena Medical has created a convenient solution to bring this imprecise practice to an end: the Eyes-On Glasses, an imaging technology solution that is both cost-efficient and extremely portable. The Eyes-On Glasses allow medical professionals to visualize the vasculature of a patient beneath the skin in real-time, eliminating the need for multiple needle sticks or the help of additional staff members. Eyes-On is one of the first wearable solutions to this common problem, and will go on sale later this year for an estimated price of $10,000. Watch a demonstration of the glasses in action below.
