Abstract:
    To create a cheap way to map veins on medical patients in order to canalize them by IR Vein Detection System through Illumination and Infrared reflection.
What is the unmet need in society that your idea will fulfill ?
    Difficult peripheral intravenous cannulation (DPIVC) occurs in 10%–24% of adults and in up to 37% of children who require a peripheral route during hospital treatment. Our product will ease up the process more cost efficiently than other products in the market.
Who needs it ? How many would benefit ?
   Obesity, skin colour and young age are all associated with the difficulty of finding and cannulation of the vein.Delayed diagnosis and initiation of treatment, stress and pain are all related to the inefficiency in cannulation and detection of the veins
How will the solution works
    We illuminate the target with IR Light (around 850nm), this is what IR LED is suppose to do. To achieve the image capturing, we have to modify a digital camera sensor. In this case, we use a webcam (future image processing purpose). A webcam that does not have a IR filter. We light it up using LED’s for which we need a DC power supply. Band Pass Optical Filter will allow only IR light to pass through and omit the hindrance from other wavelengths. The image will be capture by the webcam and
