SATO launched a UHF RFID direct thermal wristband for identification, verification and tracking of patients in hospitals.

SATO has designed this wristband for comfort and optimal reads within hospital location systems.

SATO’s UHF RFID wristband and compact four-inch printer, the CT4-LX UHF, can be integrated into a complete ID and tracking system with third party readers and antennas.

With this system, hospital staff can hygienically perform accurate ID scans without disturbing patients at rest as the wristband can be read from even through a blanket. Readers can also be positioned around the hospital so staff can be alerted immediately of any unexpected movement.


With a SATO AEP (Application Enabled Printing) compatible printer, users can both encode wristbands and develop custom apps to streamline their work processes.
