Sample Wristbands

A.
HDX
MedBand

printed at 203 dpi GX420 at
2 dots per narrow bar


This option makes the barcode two wide for either the Zebra
band or even the
MedBand
.

Sample Wristbands

B.
HDX
MedBand

printed on 300 dpi OKI
CG212 at 1 dot per narrow bar


This option is too dense to be suitably read by older
glucometer scanners.

C.
HDX
MedBand

printed on 203 dpi GX420 at

This option should be acceptable, but not as suitable as the
next.

D.
HDX MedBand printed on 300 dpi OKI

SOLUTION: HealthDynamix Security Label that is specifically designed
for the Posey NICU and Infant foam bands.


The
DataRay
/HDX Solution


HDX Security Label has a strong permanent adhesive and perforated
edges to prevent it from being removed from the Posey band.

Made of a high grade non
-
allergenic synthetic in order to remain durable
against water, alcohol, and other cleaning agents and to maintain
barcode integrity.

The HDX Security label is printed on a dedicated thermal printer that we
attach to your system
.

We provide the turnkey solution to setup both the thermal printer and the
consumable at your hospital, including the custom printer interface to
your hospital system

Durability:

Very long life

Labels 'ooze' glue into mechanics of
laser printers causing jams that
interfere with normal printing
production and require laser 'rebuild
kits' and other interventions from IT

Laser Printers

Work much like photocopiers; they
project controlled streams of ions onto
the surface of a print drum, resulting in
a charged image. The charged image
then selectively attracts toner particles,
transferring the image onto the paper
substrate by means of pressure. The
pressure from the
printhead

and drum
then fuse the image to the paper,
creating the image.

22

Prints labels in sheets,
resulting in waste

Label and wristband
adhesives can ooze from
fuser and cause jamming

Bar codes require more
ink, driving up toner
costs

Output susceptible to
toner flaking and
smudging

Media typically requires
laminate overlay which can
lead to bacteria build up and
smeared


images if not
properly placed

Thermal Printers

Thermal printing is classified as either direct
thermal or thermal transfer. The two technologies
are suited to different applications. Direct
-
thermal
printers create images by using a
printhead

to
apply heat directly to chemically treated label
media. There is no ribbon or ink required. In
thermal
-
transfer printing, the
printhead

heats a
ribbon, which melts the image to the material.
Thermal transfer is used for high durability, long
-
lasting labeling applications.


Direct
-
thermal
printing is the technology of choice for most
applications. Direct thermal is especially popular
for wristband printers, because there is no ribbon
to destroy to comply with HIPAA patient privacy
requirements.
