Medical technology is a continuously growing and extremely sensitive market. The devices – and in particular their enclosures and knobs – have to meet high standards. These must be durable, functional and stable as well as visually convincing. An ergonomic shape is a basic requirement for mobile devices worn close to the body, writes Robert Cox, V.P. Marketing at OKW Enclosures Inc.

Medical technology is an important market for OKW Gehäusesysteme. In this extremely varied sector, a wide range of design-oriented standard enclosures provides highly individual solutions for the optimum housing of electronics. In everyday use by doctors, nursing staff or patients themselves, handheld devices are required for a wide range of different purposes: controllers for hospital beds, emergency call systems or analysis devices – and they can be mobile, stationary or wired. Ergonomic shapes with pleasant tactile surfaces are essential when people are regularly handing the enclosures.
