As the inventors of the ZD510-HC Wristband Printing Solution (formerly the HC100), Zebra takes patient ID seriously. Designed for use in Zebra’s market-leading thermal printers, Zebra’s Z-Band wristbands are one of the most durable thermal wristbands available. Outside laboratory tests have confirmed that Zebra wristbands withstand a wider range of hand-sanitizers in comparison to a leading competitor, ensuring scannability and reducing the instances of nurse workarounds. Over the 20+ years that Zebra has been providing thermal wristbands, we have made multiple improvements to the durability and comfort of our wristbands based on customer feedback and new hand-sanitizers in the market.
Zebra’s Z-Band wristbands are one of the most durable wristbands. A barcode that fails to scan or requires repeated attempts to scan jeopardizes patient safety and staff productivity. Zebra’s supplies research and development team has worked with our coatings suppliers to develop a wristband that stands up to not only moisture, but a wide array of hand sanitizers to ensure optimum image durability and scanning performance.
Zebra’s Z-Band® direct thermal wristbands:
• Features a silver antimicrobial coating that protects the wristband from degradation
• Enable staff to quickly and easily print and securely fasten in less than a minute using an adhesive tab or color clip
• MR Safe* level of safety
