Ridgefield, Connecticut, May 4, 2010 ... STEUTE is pleased to introduce their extensive range of "medicalgrade" foot controls for medical device OEMs. Unlike industrial-grade foot controls which are modified to meet the functional requirements of a medical application, STEUTE's units are expressly designed to address the complete functional, ergonomic and aesthetic needs of the medical OEM's application.
Each of these CE-compliant foot controls is designed to meet relevant IEC 60601, the MDD (93/42/EEC), UL and CSA standards. Optional design features include custom housings/colors/icons, powder-coated consoles, rocker/pushbutton/joystick/footmouse(TM) actuators, analog/digital outputs, durable labels, special connectors/cables, protective shields, foot rests, optimal weight, and IP X8 ratings.
Typical applications include x-ray equipment, laser surgery devices, ultrasonic systems, surgical microscopes, positioning tables, bone saws, high-frequency surgical equipment, dental systems, and arthroscopic surgical systems
