The benefits of remote control - Trends in user interfaces for medical devices
Medical devices in the OR are now usually connected to their corresponding user interfaces by remote control. This makes additional documentation necessary, but the advantages still far outweigh any disadvantages, and device manufacturers can purchase the systems with all the necessary approvals in place. Furthermore, radio technology is a prerequisite for interoperability in the OR: in the future, multiple medical devices will be operable via a single (wireless) user interface. First applications using this technology, known as SDC (Service-oriented Device Connectivity), are already available.
