Safety and compliance challenges for medical devicesSep 07, 2022
Compliance challenges can come from the user interface of your medical device. The display often has a projected-capacitive touchscreen,…Read more
The medical environment is quite rightly rigorous and demanding, requiring display and embedded solutions that are accessible and safe to use. At Anders, we have worked on thousands of medical designs solving various design challenges.Get started on your project
Today, as we witness significant growth in the medical device market, manufacturers want to design products that are imaginative, intuitive, and intelligent, whilst complying with a range of industry standards.
We have been active in the medical market for over 30 years and continue to collaborate with the world’s most trusted healthcare brands to solve complex product design and engineering challenges, bringing precision, simplicity and smart integrated solutions that enhance user experience, to life.
From clinical diagnostic machines for hospitals and homes, to personal healthcare, fitness and wearables devices, our display and embedded solutions enable our customers to focus on next generation products as we focus on the interface design and development, manufacturing, and distribution, with compliance, and documentation covered.
Anders' proactive consultative approach was incredibly helpful for Morgan IAT. As a medical device company, we understand regulations such as ISO 13485. Anders specialise in display and touchscreen technology and were able to add their specialist bespoke engineering approach, looking at how the product interacts and combines with the environment where it will be applied.
Nigel Clarke, CEO at Morgan Innovation & Technology
With the continuous innovation of medical devices, whether in a hospital setting or in the home healthcare market, there is increased expectation from users to have a device that is intuitive, responsive, and simple to use, regardless of the environment, the users age or physical ability.
Operating a display whilst wearing gloves is common in the medical world and it’s re-assuring to know that you can have perfect touch control whether you are wearing gloves or not. But what about taking touch to the next level?
With the growing trend of digital healthcare, the need for reliable connectivity and connected devices has never been greater. Connected IoT devices need to ensure secure and accurate data transfer.
Infection control is a key concern in the medical sector. Spread of bacteria through use of the touchscreen can be minimised for the lifetime of the product.
Anders has partnered with world leading brand Kastus® to offer a globally patented antimicrobial & antiviral surface coating which kills >99% of harmful viruses including human Coronavirus without compromising touchscreen functionality.
Meeting electromagnetic compatibility (EMC) regulations for medical devices can be challenging. Intended touch must of course be detected and decoded, but devices must also provide immunity to conducted disturbances from Radio-Frequency fields, caused through the coupling of any attached cables.
Demand for telemedicine and remote healthcare products is booming, as are the number of devices entering the market. Getting your device into production quicker and ahead of your competition is paramount, which requires speeding up time to market without comprising on quality.
Anders provide engineering services to help deliver a reliable, responsive interface system quickly and efficiently.
