Foot switches for ophthalmology

In ophthalmology absolute precision is required – also when operating control devices. Because doctors and surgical staff often need both hands in order to carry out the surgery, foot controls are used to operate the medical equipment. An extremely high level of operational reliability must be guaranteed, as well as a high degree of precision. Control devices from steute are designed accordingly – both our standard devices and our customised foot controls. The program for this application field includes among others rocker foot controls that allow for fast change between two functions, foot controls with wireless signal transmission and multi-function foot controls with pedal and joystick.

Eyes are sensitive. Therefore the control devices for ophthalmology equipment must be very sensitive and precise. Again, foot controls from steute are designed accordingly.
