Our Team.

Firefly was designed by two friends who are travel nurses that recognized the lack of safe, efficient, and affordable vein lights in ERs across the country. This often leads to delays in care due to unsuccessful IV attempts resulting in multiple needle sticks on newborns and infants. After countless hours of brainstorming, designing, and testing, Adam and Evan are excited to present Firefly Vein Light.
