Touchscreens are an ideal user interface for many medical applications. In a hospital environment all equipment needs to be sanitized regularly. Unlike traditional buttons and dials, a capacitive touchscreen can be disinfected thoroughly and there are no recesses where germs, bacteria and dirt can accumulate. Moreover, with aXiom, users can operate touchscreens with ease while wearing medical gloves.
With our aXiom user interface chip, 3D touchless sensing (Hover & Proximity) is made possible, allowing the user to control the screen without actually touching it.
Projected capacitive touchscreens can be completely sealed with a reinforced glass front panel, and even the harshest cleaning agents will not damage the device.
