The vein viewer app works like a vein reader, but instead of just viewing a vein you can view it from any orientation and zoom out and in with your eyeballs.
The vein viewer is designed for people with moderate to severe epilepsy, and can be used by parents who are already familiar with a vein, but also people who may not be able to access their child’s vein.
“If you’ve got epilepsy and you want to have the best experience possible, this is a good tool,” said Keshia Hickey, an assistant professor of neurology at the University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center and one of the inventors of the vein viewer.
“The vein is going to be seen from your perspective.
It’s not going to come to you, it’s going to pop out.”
Hickey said the app also works with any vein or vein-like tissue that’s visible from your vision, such as your tongue, and even if the vein isn’t visible.
If you’re experiencing symptoms like headaches, vomiting, difficulty breathing, or other physical symptoms, you can try the app and then report it to the National Institutes of Health.
Hickey hopes that with this app, parents with epilepsy can take their children to a doctor with a prescription to check up on their health, instead of leaving them to have to leave the home and travel to a clinic to see a doctor.
“This is a very novel way to get their child to have their health monitored,” Hickey said.
“They can be monitored 24/7, 365 days a year.”

The vein-reader app can also be used in mobile devices and the app is available for iOS and Android devices.
Hickiks lab is working with a number of companies to create and develop new ways for doctors to monitor patients and their children.
“We have a lot of ideas about what can be done with that,” Hiccys said.
The team has created a website that describes the technology in more detail, and also released a video of their vein viewer demonstration.
In the video, which shows the device working in a real-world setting, Hickey explains how the app works, including how to zoom in, zoom out, and zoom up to see veins, as well as how to control the volume and zoom on the touchscreen.
The video also describes the ways that patients can use the app to check their children for seizures.
The app was designed to be used at home by patients with moderate or severe epilepsy who are able to afford to have a vein-type medical device installed in their home.
The app is being developed in collaboration with pediatric epilepsy centers, and Hickey is also working with her colleagues at the Cleveland Clinic, to help make the device available to epilepsy patients and families.
“The device will be a safe and easy way for patients to get to their child for an appointment and we’re working to bring it to as many hospitals as we can,” said Hickey.
