Medical laser foot switches must observe IEC 60601-1 and IEC 60601-2-22 regulations. These standards require high mechanical stability, protection against unintentional actuation and prescribes specific actuating forces. Besides this, certain protection classes depending on the application in question are determined according to IEC 60529.
