Small Enclosures For Wearable Medical Devices

The medical industry requires not only large units; demand for small wearable devices is also increasing. They offer a high degree of safety and provide the user with vital information – but are unintrusive and comfortable to wear, causing as little disruption as possible to the everyday life of the user. Runners and other sports enthusiasts have embraced ergonomic wearables that provide information about the route and distance covered, number of calories burned and heart rate. Elderly people and others who are vulnerable are also benefiting from this technology: they can summon an ambulance or nursing staff by pressing by an emergency call button. Simple operation by means of a keypad, touchscreen or button offers the user a degree of control in difficult situations – reinforcing the feeling of security and reducing stress or anxiety.
OKW developed BODY-CASE precisely for applications such as these. The enclosure shells are highly polished and are made of high-quality ASA (UL 94 HB) in traffic white (RAL 9016). The matt TPV sealing ring gives BODY-CASE an IP 65 protection rating. This ring is available in vermilion (RAL 2002) and lava (similar to anthracite) as standard. BODY-CASE can be specified in two sizes: M 1.96" x 1.61" x 0.62" and L 2.16" x 1.81" x 0.66". Accessories include a wrist strap, neck lanyard, hand strap, belt/pocket clip and a station for safe storage and inductive charging.
