A very smart sling label
Prepared for improved track & trace
All reusable Guldmann slings now have smart labels that incorporate RFID technology at no extra cost.
The data embedded in the tag on the label is a unique serial/identification number and includes the production date. Unlike printed barcodes, RFID tags do not “fade” or become hard to read, no matter how many times a sling is washed. Depending on which reader technology is utilized, the data can be read outside the line of sight, whereas barcodes must be aligned with an optical scanner.
The RFID tags in Guldmann slings are of the passive type and can be read with most RFID reader technologies on the market.
RFID technology will help you comply with the new ISO 10535 standard which stipulates that all patient slings must be inspected and approved every 6 months and a log on each individual patient sling must be recorded.
