Since the medical directive (93/42/EEC) was introduced in 1993, the steute Meditec range has steadily grown. Today, manufacturers of medical equipment have at their disposal user interfaces for all manner or disciplines and applications – controlled by foot or hand, for simple to highly complex tasks in the OR, diagnostics and medical practices.
The business unit steute Meditec produces not only a standard range of foot and hand controls for medical equipment, but also numerous customised user interfaces. The aim of the steute developers is always to enable medical devices to be operated intuitively, so that the surgeon or physician and/or medical staff can concentrate on the patient and task or surgery at hand.
One of the core competencies of steute Meditec is a wireless technology which was developed especially for use in conjunction with medical equipment. Its product range also includes cabled foot controls for medical applications, however.
All steute control units for medical equipment meet the highest standards of ergonomic comfort and accessibility. They are manufactured in accordance with the EN ISO 13485 certified QM system for medical products.
