Thermal Zebra Wristbands
Direct Thermal ID Wristbands
Direct Thermal Latex-Free Wristbands are an effective, error-free patient identification that ensures patient safety with a point-of-care process. The wrist bands have a strong adhesive backing, are waterproof and made of a tear-resistant synthetic material that allow hospitals to print anywhere. GBS' Wristbands can help hospitals prevent medical errors by printing accurate and reliable patient information. The wristbands allow for immediate availability of information that is necessary to perform medication administration, specimen collection, surgical procedures, and any other patient care activity throughout the patient's stay.
GBS is a Certified Technology Partner with Zebra Technologies and offers their "complete" line of thermal ID band products. The wristbands have an antimicrobial coating to eliminate infection-causing bacteria. Patients can wear the durable, scannable and comfortable wristbands while eliminating the risk of infections in hospitals.
Thermal wrist bands provide a reliable, easy-to-use and cost effective solution for a positive patient identification. You will be able to print high-resolution text, graphics, photos and bar codes directly to the wrist band using a desktop thermal printer. Printing is on-demand, so there's no waste and expense of printing entire laser sheets when it's not needed. They are extremely durable and highly resistant to wear and repeated exposures to soapy water, foam washes, blood, alcohol and iodine.
The wrist bands can be printed with a linear and 2-D bar codes that are high-resolution and high contrast print that can be scanned immediately. Because patient information stays readable, hospitals can leave the medical identification bands on through a patient's stay, avoiding the nuisance of frequent replacement while saving the hospital money. This high-resolution print, on a durable latex-free material, produces a precise printed bar code that delivers an immediate first-time scan while remaining smudge-proof and accurate throughout the patient's stay.
Our Direct Thermal Wristbands feature an inorganic ionic silver coating that kills Microorganisms that come into contact with it. As the silver ions are taken into the microorgaisms, they react and bond to the cellular enzyme. This inhibits the Microorganisms exzyme activity and multiplication, which eliminates the., protecting your hospital or medical facility from tragic and expensive errors. Because patient information does not smear and stays readable, hospital staff and doctors and most bar code scanners will provide a positive patient identification.
Direct Thermal Wristbands offer an alternative to shielded wristbands by allowing the patient information to be printed directly onto the patient wrist band. The wristbands are scannable by bar code scanners allowing for an effective and efficient way to get a computer confirmation of the patient's identity, preventing hospital medical errors. Hospitals are achieving an significant increase in patient safety by implementing these quality bar coded wristbands at point-of-care. As hospitals adopt and expand the technology throughout the hospital, even greater benefits are taking place.

Direct Thermal Wristbands are printed from a small thermal printer which allows you to print directly on a patient's wristband, so there's no label to print and then apply to the wrist band, creating a one-step process. Within seconds, you can print and apply the wristband on a patient. Furthermore, the small space saving printer is easy to install and operate and requires no ribbons to install and no worries to destroy ribbons that contain important patient information.
