When designing a medical foot control there are many things that must be into account. Certain criteria must be followed in order to produce an interface that meets the standards set forth by the Medical world. Deciding on things such as paint type and the weight of the foot switch may seem minor, but they can be critical to the acceptance of it in the field. Thinking of the end user and their surroundings will help in creating a foot control that is not only aesthetically and ergonomically pleasing, it will also be a functionally safe and reliable interface for them.
