TransLite LLC offers three hand-held transilluminators for use during vein access. These devices all use TransLite's patented side-transillumination method for imaging veins anywhere on the body. A unique C-shaped ring design gives uniform illumination of a small region of tissue. To achieve the best contrast for vein imaging, bright orange light (for strong illumination) is combined with deep red light (for high penetration of dark pigmented skins).
Veinlites not only help find the vein, they can also close it, prevent rolling and stretch the skin for easy access without a tourniquet. Specially designed light shields snap on to the units to stop interference from overhead light. Pediatric or neonate adapters can be used to cone down the light area for use with children or neonates. All models come with disposable plastic covers to prevent infection.
