Instead of featuring separate controls for
navigation, image manipulation, and menu
selection, for example, all commands can be
integrated into one easy-to-use device that
also improves productivity and efficiency for
medical staff viewing images from diagnostic
equipment. This cuts down on manufacturing
costs, making the equipment more affordable
to produce. It also allows for a simplified me-
chanical design, which means the equipment’s
control panel can be reduced in size.
As this promising new technology can reduce
bacterial infections, increase diagnostic imaging
equipment functionality, and enhance healthcare staff productivity, it offers a significant
competitive advantage to the developers of
medical device technology that could use it to
replace more traditional controls.
