As medical device OEMs know, a product designed for the medical market is fundamentally different from one intended for industrial use. This is also true for a foot control. From the bottom pads to the mating connector, the design requirements for a medical-grade foot control are significantly different from those of an "industrial-grade" unit. Important design factors for medical use, many of which are often less-critically considered when designing for an industrial application. Consideration of these parameters during the design of the foot control results in significant benefits to both the OEM and to the user of their medical device. A number of these considerations are discussed in this paper.

I rather agree, why sign in to view an "infomercial"? I am neither a potential competitor nor a potential customer, but I do have an interest in making my non-medical products at least as reliable as a pacemaker. And I would prefer to not waste the time of some local sales rep who needs to sell product to people who may be buyers, which I am not one.

I agree as well. Take your infomercials elsewhere! I'm ashamed that EDN is apparently so desperate for editorial content that they stoop to kiss the marketing folks that usually write these "tease" pieces ... most of which take on the specter of an "executive summary" with no technical "meat" whatsoever! Yes, that's how I really feel ...
