LaserBand, LLC (LASERBAND), the leader in patient wristband technology, recently extended its wristband line with the FusionBand™, the first and only self-laminating, direct thermal patient wristband on the market.

"The FusionBand has our patented self-laminating technology that preserves patient data for longer wristband usability, adhesive-free zones around the form edges to prevent printer jamming and reduce costly maintenance, and integrated tamper-evident tabs for improved patient safety," Mike Thieme, Vice President of Manufacturing, states. "Moreover, the FusionBand offers improvements over a hospital's existing thermal wristband selection without requiring changes in workflow or IT re-formatting, thus making it quick, easy, and cost-effective to implement."

Additionally, the FusionBand thermal wristband includes the following features:

A clear laminate and ultra-white image area to optimize scanner performance An image area that supports barcode technology (HIPPA-compliant) and lies flatter on a patient's wrist for easier scanning An innovative design that is five times as strong as traditional thermal wristbands (withstands over one hundred pounds of pressure) An easy-to-assemble adhesive closure that does not harbor germs and bacteria often associated with clip closures A patient wristband extender for use on larger patients, such as bariatric, edema, etc. "FusionBand's design incorporates the same look and assembly as our popular LaserBand2® laser-printed wristband line, giving users the option to standardize on a single band design regardless of print output method selected," adds Mike Thieme.
