Jadak, a manufacturer of radio-frequency identification (RFID) and barcode scanning products based in North Syracuse, NY, has introduced a cordless Bluetooth RFID reader and linear and matrix barcode scanner. Designed specifically for healthcare, the HS-2R Bluetooth high-frequency (HF) RFID reader is built with flexibility to help medical technicians improve workflows and adapt to changing technology, according to the company.

The dual-function Bluetooth HS-2R hand scanner reads and writes to 13.56 megahertz HF RFID tags and supports a wide range of HF standards. The device uses area-imaging technology to read most common 1D and 2D barcodes, improving scan performance on damaged barcodes. According to the company, the HS-2R’s durable design protects the device in medical applications, making it suitable for use in point of care settings and for surgical part tracking as well as other purposes.

“Jadak is known as a leader for best-in-class data collection platforms and service solutions with world-class engineering resources,” said David Miller, president of Jadak. “With the addition of the HS-2R, we continue our commitment to providing embedded technologies that help the healthcare industry improve overall care. Our products can help reduce medical errors, improve patient safety, and raise the efficiency of healthcare across a broad spectrum of applications and procedures.”
