Long Island, NY, United States, 2011/11/15 - November conference in Dusseldorf, Germany is the largest medical industry trade show in the world - AccuVein.com.
AccuVein Inc., a global leader in medical imaging technology and the creator of the AV300, 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 Dusseldorf, Germany, November 16-19. This “world medical trade fair” is the largest conference of its kind anywhere and has been staged for more than 40 years. This year’s “World of Medica” Conference is expected to draw 4,300 exhibitors and host an estimated 137,000 visitors.
AccuVein will have its AV300 technology on display in the US Pavilion, Hall 16, Booth16/E40-13. The area is designated for Medical Technology, Electro-medical devices, surgical instruments and related products.
“Our activities at the world-renowned Medica World Forum for Medicine represent our efforts to continue to make vein illumination using the AV300 part of the industry standard of care worldwide,” said Ron Goldman, AccuVein CEO. “We want healthcare providers to recognize the vast potential and future medical imaging applications of our technology and this conference is one of the most effective ways to do that on a grand scale.”
AccuVein’s industry-leading and award-winning AccuVein AV300 vein illumination solution is in use at more than 1000 hospitals and available for sale in 88 countries. The AV300 has been shown to improve peripheral vascular access for IV infusion by projecting a safe pattern of light on patient’s skin that reveals the position of underlying veins.
Venipuncture is the most common invasive medical procedure worldwide with an estimated 2.7 million procedures conducted every day in the United States alone. Studies show that up to one third of these attempts to access a vein fail the first time, creating unnecessary patient discomfort as well as additional costs.
The AccuVein AV300 has received high praise from doctors, nurses, hospital administrators, patients and families for its ease of use, saving time and money and for improving patient care. The technology has also received numerous awards and widespread recognition from within the health care sector, including the top “gold” prize in the prestigious MDEA design competition as well as the 2011 Frost & Sullivan New Product Innovation Award.
