Blood-Sucking Robot Could Save Your Practice Time and Money

The Veebot uses sophisticated image-analysis software and ultrasound to identify the optimal veins from which to draw blood or insert IV lines. According to Veebot’s website, healthcare workers as a whole sustain about 2000 needle stick injuries a day, resulting in $1 billion of related legal and medical costs per year.

The robot’s blood-drawing process takes about a minute and might prove to be safer and more efficient than having a human perform the venipuncture, in addition to reducing the likelihood of needle stick injuries for medical professionals. Click here to read more about the Veebot.
