Medical technology is a continuously growing and extremely sensitive market. The devices – and in particular their enclosures and knobs – have to meet high standards. These must be durable, functional and stable as well as visually convincing. An ergonomic shape is a basic requirement for mobile devices worn close to the body, writes Robert Cox, Sales & Marketing Director at OKW Enclosures Ltd.

Medical technology is an important market for OKW Gehäusesysteme. In this extremely varied sector, a wide range of design-oriented standard enclosures provides highly individual solutions for the optimum housing of electronics. In everyday use by doctors, nursing staff or patients themselves, handheld devices are required for a wide range of different purposes: controllers for hospital beds, emergency call systems or analysis devices – and they can be mobile, stationary or wired. Ergonomic shapes with pleasant tactile surfaces are essential when people are regularly handing the enclosures.
