Medical & Healthcare
In the medical field, there is nothing more critical than a patient’s comfort, safety, and health. Medical instruments must operate readily, reliably, and correctly while weathering the rigors of hospitals, clinics, emergency rooms, medical wards, and nursing homes. As the ubiquity of projected capacitive (PCAP or PCI) touchscreens grows, medical institutions have begun to adopt next-gen instruments that incorporate PCAP touch functionality.
AMT PCAP touch solutions can be found in ultrasounds, EKGs, dialysis equipment, blood gas analyzers, AEDs, ultrasonic dental scalers, and more.
