2014 NI Engineering Impact Awards Finalist: Developing a Portable 3D Vision-Guided Medical Robot for Autonomous Venipuncture

2014 Machine Control Finalist

Developing a Portable 3D Vision-Guided Medical Robot for Autonomous Venipuncture

Author: Alvin Chen and Max Balter, VascuLogic

Challenge: Developing a portable, image-guided, medical robot that autonomously performs blood draws and other IV procedures when medical professionals are unable to successfully access veins.

Solution: Combining the performance of NI CompactRIO hardware, the flexibility of NI LabVIEW system design software, and the extensive NI robotics and machine vision libraries to deliver a safe portable medical device for initial human testing.

As a doctor working in ICU for more than 10 years, I believe this medical device will benefit the severely ill patients a lot.
