High-frequency surgery

Maximum freedom and flexibility for surgeons in the OR with our wireless foot switches, ergonomically designed for the special requirements of high-frequency surgery. SW2.4LE-MED is our energy-saving wireless system – at a price which is attractive even in a market segment under extreme cost pressure.

X-ray / MRI / CT / mammography

Three-dimensional images of organs, tissue structures and bones have to be generated within seconds. Our innovative foot switches and hand controls are ideally suited to such applications. Many of our customers opt for a customised solution; alternatively they can select an already existing steute product from our wide CLASSIC LINE range.


Highly precise and intuitively operable foot switches ensure maximum fitness for purpose during phacoemulsification in the OR. Horizontal and vertical pedal actuation, programmable braking points for a precise tactile feedback, or integration of a laser control: we realise your wishes and requirements with regard to ergonomic comfort and user precision.


In ophthalmology and neurosurgery, surgical microscopes are used. Our bespoke foot switches for surgical microscopes, which facilitate the highest degrees of precision and sensitivity, have been defining marketplace standards for years. All actuators are arranged ergonomically and are intuitively operable for users.

Laser devices

Our user interfaces for laser medicine are protected from unintended actuation by innovative guards. And yet we make no compromises regarding fitness for purpose, and all other normative requirements are comprehensively fulfilled.

Operating tables / operating chairs

When surgical staff have their hands full, they can still move the patient on the operating table into the desired position by means of a foot control. Our innovative foot switches comply with the general requirements of the IEC 60601-1 standard. As a further option, we also offer integrated solutions.

Dental medicine

Multifunctional foot switches for speed control and chair adjustment are special features required in dental medicine. Our multifunctional user interfaces are available in different variants to meet your particular wishes. As a further option, your foot control can also be equipped with our own affordable SW2.4LE-MED wireless technology.

Research cooperations

Ergonomic comfort, usability and wireless technology are "classic" research fields for steute Meditec. In addition, we are key players in the drive to implement an innovative SDC (Service-oriented Device Connectivity) interface for the interoperable OR of the future.
