Veebot claims that its robotic phlebotomist can draw blood and insert IVs automatically by combining robotics with image-analysis software.
An infrared light illuminates the inner arm and a camera picks out the location of the veins.
An ultrasound confirms the sufficient blood flow in the chosen vein to draw blood. Finally, the robotic arm moves the needle and inserts in the chosen vein.
Recently, the latest model of veebot has been updated, which looks slicker than previous version and performs even better.
