When Welch Allyn wanted to offer a printer option with its new Vital Sign monitor, Able Systems Ap1300 mobile printer was shortlisted for a technical evaluation.
As a leading manufacturer of medical diagnostic equipment and healthcare products, Welch Allyn wanted to enable medical professionals to print at the patient’s bedside and directly stick the results into the patient’s notes. Able System’s engineering team assessed the possibilities of the Ap1300 printer being capable of working with linerless label stock in order to do this.
