Was this mass produced? Does it mean they had to buy one Gameboy for each unit?

I guess so, but the market for this is very small

gameboys were used a lot for stuff like this. sewing machines etc. before raspberry pi, GB was a cheap hackable “micro controller+display”

No doubt about that, but I was surprised to see a GB in a professional medical device
