The RIDA imager pairs easily with Android, Apple iOS and Windows Mobile devices as well as standard laptops equipped with Bluetooth wireless technology. A healthcare version of RIDA is equipped with a disinfectant ready and anti-microbial enclosure making it ideal for bedside point-of-care applications. The compact size and light weight form factor of this mobile imager offers freedom of movement while scanning, with the added benefit of helping to prevent cross-contamination in the hospital.


“Healthcare applications present unique challenges. We leverage our extensive experience in data collection technology to create solutions that meet industry specific needs. The new RIDA area imager is small, ergonomic, and perfectly hand-fitted with wireless connectivity making it a device that healthcare workers find easy to use and intuitive,” states Pietro Todescato, CTO of Datalogic.


Bar code technology at the point-of-care helps to assure the proper prescription is administered to the proper patient, supporting the concept of patient’s rights. Bar code usage also advances inventory control, asset tracking, lab specimen tracking, data tracking and pharmacy drug verifications.
