Wearable ring scanner set to change scanning solutions for use in warehouses

Sweden – Handheld Group, a leading manufacturer of rugged mobile computers, this week introduced the RS60 Ring Scanner, a comfortable hands-free scanning solution for use in warehouses, retail, distribution and other situations requiring highly mobile scanning.

“The new RS60 ring scanner is all about efficiency and mobility. It can be worn on either the right or left hand so workers can maximize productivity while keeping their hands free,” said Johan Hed, Handheld director of product management.

Our new wearable line is designed to fit those needs,” said Thomas Löfblad, CEO, Handheld Group, adding that Handheld has always been about mobile computing, and they will be expanding theirs wearable product line further in the future.
