Wristbands – Printing & Labeling

Labels, Supplies & Wristbands for Healthcare

At RMS Omega, we understand the importance of having the right supplies on hand in order to implement successful barcode technology. Labels, wristbands and ribbons are critical components to the system, depending on the industry. Our specialists draw on more than 17 years of corporate experience to advise on products that are consistently readable and scannable throughout all of your particular operations.

There are several important considerations in choosing barcode supplies:

  • Temperature, humidity and light of the working environment
  • Size and shape of items
  • Contact with chemicals and disinfectants
  • Exposure to imaging such as MRIs and x-rays
  • Oily, greasy or dirty surfaces

Using RFID Wristbands

With RFID wristbands, nurses can quickly scan and identify patients without having to adjust or wake them. Wristbands are soft and comfortable, featuring adjustable adhesive closures to fit patients of all sizes. RMS Omega’s RFID thermal wristband materials and coatings are specifically engineered for comfort and contact to human skin. However, RFID wristbands should be removed prior to MRI or X-ray due to potential risks from metal in the RFID chip.

Label Selection & Printing Services

Our team can work with you to review your operations, identify your needs and recommend the most appropriate labels and ribbons and wristbands, if required. We will ensure these media are durable and high quality, capable of supporting your printing technologies, whether the labels are paper or synthetic with a direct thermal or thermal transfer application. If you want customized labels, we can work with our partners to produce just the right size, adhesive, design and color.

We know one of your concerns is running out of supplies. To make sure you always have the supply of labels, wristbands and ribbons you need, RMS Omega offers two options.  We can auto ship a predetermined amount of product regularly or we can ship ‘on demand’. We are even prepared to create your labels and store them in our warehouse until you need them. Any of these arrangements can be adjusted as your business grows or your product lines change.
