''Anders' proactive consultative approach was incredibly helpful for Morgan IAT. We are a medical device company; therefore, we understand the various regulations e.g. ISO 13485, but Anders specialise in display and touchscreen technology and were able to add their specialist bespoke engineering approach, looking at how the product is going to interact and combine with the environment where it will be applied.”

Poor display clarity and viewability can create challenges with colour shift depending on the readers position to the screen. Applying special films or filters, or optical bonding processes can greatly improve colour clarity and avoid screen glare.
Medical applications can require fine image detailing. We can help optimise display contrast, resolution and brightness according to specific project requirements and environmental considerations.
Operating a display whilst wearing gloves is common in the medical world. We can optimise the Capacitive Touchscreen (PCAP) to support gesture/multi-touch functionality with different glove types.
Medical devices need to be immune to very high levels of EMI. Knowing the optimum IC components to use to combat this is key. Our engineers can help with selection and firmware tuning.
Infection control is a key concern in the medical sector. Spread of infection through use of the touchscreen can be minimised by applying anti- bacterial coatings.
A fast response from your medical device is imperative for life critical procedures. For systems that need to be connected via a hospital network across multiple devices, the motherboard I/O functionality can be adapted to ensure reliable data monitoring and collection.
