Touch Screens for Medical Devices

Taking an application from concept to production is a complex process. We have a breadth of technical capabilities and expertise to assist you with your touch screen application throughout the whole process.  We have supported many types of medical device projects, ranging from handheld diagnostic applications to highly automated lab equipment.

At eN-Touch, we understand the importance of having reliable and durable touch screens for applications used in the medical field.  Whether you’re upgrading or creating a new application, we can guide you through different touch screen options, their features and benefits and help you make a decision that’s right for your application.

Choosing a Touch Screen Technology for Medical Applications

Resistive Touch Screens:  Many medical devices use resistive touch screens for its durability and cost-effective attributes.


Notably, the simpler the device, the more likely it is to use a resistive touch screen.  The main reason for that is because the device function doesn’t require any interactive, high-resolution images or multi-touch.  If the application has straight forward functions such as “On/Off”, it’s appropriate to go with a resistive touch screen technology.


Capacitive Touch Screens:  If the application calls for a more complex interaction such as using multi-touch and maneuvering graphics on the screen then going with a capacitive touch screen would a be a choice to consider.  This would give the user an experience that’s similar to using a tablet or a smartphone.
