Tried to use it several times but failed every time to locate any vein.

The technology is garbage. It only shows the most superficial of veins that you can see clearly without the app. This adds no benefit. Don’t waste your money.
This app only works if your veins are already visible. I wasted my money on this cuz my veins aren’t visible to the naked eye. But if your veins are visible this app does help see them better.
I’m a paramedic and sometimes it’s crucial to get IV access. I have never been good at finding veins by feel, especially pediatric veins. I sweat bullets when starting IVs on kids, but I actually was able to locate a couple of good veins I couldn’t see on a pediatric patient that was fair skinned. I got the IV first try. It was well worth the price. It doesn’t make the stick for you, but it allows you to gauge a good area to start. Love this app!
I work in a hospital lab and thought this would be interesting to try. The large veins that I know are there don't show up at all. Yes, I held it far enough away. I tried it in good lighting on a variety of patients and positioned it in every way imaginable, and I didn't find this app to be useful in locating veins for blood draws. Might be useful for other applications, but not for a clinical laboratory.
I'm a physician. I have a handheld ultrasound machine 15K not including the cost of my linear probe. But I bought this to see if this actually works. I'm a bit concerned that it does work in the middle of an IV drug epidemic since anyone can buy this, I hope this doesn't help people overdose. I think this has the potential to be dangerous. You do have to adjust the screen and hold of 6 inches from the Arm like the developer said in a response to a poor comment. I can see this being useful although not as good as the vein finder or an Ultrasound if you don't have access to either it is well worth the $5. What is really needed is this technology to be an app for smart glasses for it to be optimally useful. Imagine your nurse starting your IV with a VR headset with camera only augmented vision to find your veins. That would be cool.
Thanks for your team innovation. The last thing I want, as a medical personnel, is to see more pain on hard stick patient with our needle "digging" around, on top of their pain. As a MBA student, I presented this. A supervisor delightfully plan to propose with upper leadership. You need more advocates for this to market, revolutionize the way we treat patients. *Any idea of a referral code to post on my website yet?midKnightstudios.com
Very much worth the $5. My charge nurse asked me to start an IV on a patient that wasn't mine, edematous, and a very hard stick. Got it on the first try without a visible vein (only found in with Vein Seek Pro.) Marked my top and bottom point and aimed between the lines. Went a little crazy and decided to check all the staffers veins too. Works great on light, medium, and very dark skin! It's not going to keep veins from rolling but the finding is much easier. The only con I had was that it didn't work well on folks with extensive tattoos on their forearm. Ink interferes with the light spectrum. Other than that, worth every penny!
This app is GREAT! I don't right reviews but I had to with this one. This developer needs credit where it's deserved. Don't hesitate. A+
This app is amazing. Makes my job so much easier. Makes placing a difficult PVAD so simple!
Just got this app. Still playing with it to figure out how it works best. So far I have been impressed. If I hold the phone about 12 in away from the skin the veins show better. Also seems to show better on the palm side of the arm. For $5 I was not expecting much, but this has far exceeded what I expected.
I'm a dialysis patient that gets poked on a daily basis and this app absolutely bites!!!!!! I want my $5.00 back so I can buy an app that does what it claims!!!!!! Thumbs down!!!!
What an amazing app!! This works like a charm. I was super skeptical at first, but time and again this app has found veins that I can't see with the naked eye. Way easier and more convenient than ultrasound. Perfect for the middle of the night. This works best when there is a lot of light...use the flashlight if you can't turn the lights up in the room. So happy I bought this!!
To get the app working: 1) hold the phone FAR AWAY from the skin, 2) turn VeinSeek on (button in top right), 3) turn flashlight on (button in bottom left), and adjust contrast slowly from the left side until veins just start to appear. It's easy to use and works exactly as shown in the video, but you have to follow those directions, or it doesn't work. The directions are also repeated in the help button at the bottom right of the screen.
I bought this thinking it was a neat and helpful tool for guidance as a nurse. NOPE I have yet to see one single vein, pretty upset I bought this.
I'm an ICU nurse. This app somewhat works to find the veins. It finds superficial veins that will probably blow. However, if you need a line on somebody STAT, it's better than nothing. $.99 would be a much better price point.
Human eyes and special nurse is more good this app.
This app is great but it takes a minute to figure out how to get it working. First off, you have to hold it at least 6 inches away from the skin so the camera can focus. It also works MUCH better with the flashlight on. When the flashlight is on, turn the contrast up a little bit (about 1/4 of the way from the left). Definitely lets you see veins that you can't see with the naked eye. Awesome!
It works almost worse then My own eyes in finding veins don't waste money .
This is useless. Like the other reviewer said, it's basically a camera filter, and just detects blue/green colors and shades them black to outline them. Nothing better than your own eyes and fingers. Feel for the veins. Again, useless product.
Could've saved my money. Can only see superficial veins and no better than my own eye. Save it.
I was skeptical, but holy cow.... it works. I have horrible veins and see them with no problems. Way too cool. Awesome app. Perfect for new nurses.
As an Infusion nurse, this app has been a gift inn my work. I was initially skeptical but it actually works...genius!!!!
it's basically a cheap Camera filter. I would not recommend this.Save your money!
Buyer beware :-(. I'll play around with the app more but initial review is meh. Only clearly identified veins I could already see near the surface.
I'm a PA working in both ED and UC. Everything is hunkey-dory until it becomes apparent multiple techs aren't able to get access on that hard-stick vasculopath who needs fluids and labs stat. Then all of the sudden all eyes are on me to dust off my IV chops and make something wonderful happen. It's fantastic having this incredible easy to use app in my back pocket, especially in the urgent care setting where there's no bedside sono available. This purchase was well worth it.
I'm a home health nurse! This is going to be awesome! My fellow nurses are downloading This app now!!! Worth it. Note... You have to tap the "Vein seek" to turn it on. It's not automatic
Interesting App for sing blood vessels through the skin on hands legs arms etc. there is an adjustment to enhance vessel contrast. Pretty cool for under $5.
I tried the app on 3 different people, skin types,colors,ages. Veins DONT show up. AT ALL! Its a scam. Super bummed 😖. Save your money!!!
I'm happy to tell you that I have been using Vein Seek in Zimbabwe! It's been helpful on our patients who all have dark skin. I've seen veins clarified using your program-- and our patients have very difficult veins to see --- they are volume depleted and our lighting is difficult to adjust. Today we had even a "negative" result that was helpful -- we had a patient that looked like she had no obvious veins. Her arm was in a tourniquet yet with our eyes we could see no veins and on feeling her forearm we could feel no veins. We pulled out Vein Seek and there were no veins. We used a control and looked at the arm of a doctor whose skin color was the same as the patient's-- we were able to easily see the doctor's veins, so we knew the app was working well. Because of Vein Seek we were able to save our time and give up on seeking for a peripheral Vein that wasn't there. The patient was able to avoid excessive poking and prodding because we were able to quickly rule out the possibility of a peripheral IV. Your app is great! I have been sharing it with doctors in Zimbabwe and they have been showing interest in it because they cannulate their own patients.
Have tried this on a number of people with good results. Works best with the flashlight on and the contrast at the lowest setting where you can just start to see veins.
This app doesn't work at all keep your hard earned money. I don't know how thy did it in the video but it doesn't work. Rip off.
