Intuitive Operating Systems for Medical Equipment

Our steute user interfaces for medical devices meet the highest standards regarding ergonomic comfort, intuitive operability, reliability and compliance with directives. Integrating steute hand and foot controls in your medical devices gives you the additional benefit of being able to concentrate fully on your own core competencies – development and production of the overall medical system – because steute can then take care of certification, validation and documentation to all the relevant medical standards. And your end users – surgical, hospital and ambulatory physicians – can complete their very responsible task to the best of their ability because your medical device and our user interface work in perfect harmony.
