Quality Matters: Zebra Puts Wristband Durability to the Test

Posted May 2, 2018

wristband 3

Automated patient identification is essential to protecting the well-being of patients and the integrity of the healthcare system. Wristbands plays a big part of this process. The wristbands must be durable enough to withstand the rigors of the busy hospital environment and exposure to daily usage of hand sanitizers.

When it comes to quality, Zebra put their wristbands to the test. The wristbands went under a severe stress testing to a wide range of exposures such as isopropyl, rubbing alcohol, water, and hand sanitizers.  It is tested that Zebra’s Z-band direct and the Z-Band UltraSoft wristbands are more durable against Purell Waterless Hand Sanitizer than the leading competitor.

Z-Band Direct Wristbands are latex-free and MR-safe. These direct thermal polypropylene wristbands are scannable up to 14 days even with the hospital’s busy environment and constant use of hand sanitizers.

Z-Band UltraSoft Wristbands are thermal synthetic bands that are MR-safe and latex-free.

ARDL conclusively found that both Z-Band Direct and UltraSoft were more durable than the leading competitors bands. The scanners were able to read the wristbands for a longer period of time before it becomes unscannable.

Quality Matters especially in the fast-pace environment, like the hospital. Zebra is committed to providing quality wristbands that meet the high standards for image durability, sustainability, and comfort. The Z-Bands are available in adult, pediatric, and infant sizes.

If you are interested in learning more about the wristbands or a compatible printer, feel free to contact one of our dedicated account managers for a quote or more info.

ID Security for K-12 Schools

Posted April 9, 2015

Zebra ZXP Series 1 ID Card Printer System ID Card Printer SystemWhat was once only contemplated for colleges and universities, badging identification for students has now become more commonplace in this country’s elementary, middle, and high schools. While some solutions within the lower schools may not be as technologically advanced as universities where an entire debit/credit system attaches to the ID, the practice still has some very useful applications.

Safety

The tragic incidents at schools like Sandy Hook elementary School and Columbine High School remind us of how important securing our schools can be. Identification of students allows for easier and quicker accounting of the whereabouts of our precious children. K-12 schools have been using a combination of id card badge and printing and a tracking software to track where children are and set up mustering points for evacuation. Zebra ZXP Series 3 printers provide multiple options for printing and encoding and work nicely for many schools with a hundreds of students. Scan Station by Jolly technologies allows for checking in and out at various stations to continually track where students are.  While you can never predict when tragedy will occur, having the right process in place can help eliminate the uncertainties.

Efficiency

ID cards can also improve efficiencies within the schools. Knowing traffic flows and usage at specific points around the campus can help schools understand where resources or infrastructure need to be added. Zebra ID Cards can simply be swiped or scanned at various locations to understand activity levels at each locations. In a more complicated environment, the Zebra ZXP Series 7 offers RFID printing capabilities to track students in real time. Quick action can be taken when activity exceeds capacity in a given area, and it allows administrators to jump in before any issues arise.

ID badging of students can safe time, energy and in some cases lives. Zebra and BarcodesInc have the right ID card solution for any size school or campus. Give us a call to discuss what options are right for you.
