An innovative medical button switch manufactured by Switchcraft is being used by dentists as a ‘kill switch’ to provide control to patients during a drilling procedure.
Connections need to be reliable and robust in various medical applications. Switchcraft and Conxall offer an extensive line of IP rated connectors, cable assemblies, jacks and plugs to make the perfect components for medical devices.
Switchcraft and Conxall can offer standard as well as custom options to meet the specific needs of medical applications for compact, robust electrical connections.
Switchcraft’s medical button switch gives patients control over the drilling procedure by allowing them to stop the drill if required, with the press of a button. This has been achieved by adding a Switchcraft cordette assembly to the dental drill equipment.
The switch helps to keep the patient comfortable while allowing the dentist to continue work without worrying about the patient’s discomfort during the drilling procedure.
Switchcraft and Conxall products are available in Australia from Clarke & Severn Electronics .
