Traditional mechanical HMI switches are more cumbersome and harder to clean. To support patient needs as technology becomes more sophisticated, a good HMI system makes a device simpler and more intuitive to the user.
Flexible circuits help deliver an improved patient and doctor experience by providing user-friendly touch sensors with smooth, non-porous surfaces that are easier to clean. Flexible printed circuits are well-designed to fit the user's image of the tasks they need to perform. They enable the ability to give accurate feedback, presenting critical and detailed visual information back to the user. Their capabilities remove design limitations, opening new possibilities for small and tight spaces, uneven and flat surfaces.
