Siemens to Use IMGs My-T-Touch® in key medical systems

 

CHATSWORTH, CA. July 2006 -- IMG, the primary supplier of onscreen keyboards, human machine interface designer tools, and pointing device enhancement utilities announced today that it begun delivering its software to Siemens Medical. Siemens becomes the latest in a series of medical equipment manufacturers to integrate IMGs My-T-Touch product with its systems.

My-T-Touch (My-Typing-Touch Keyboard) offers more than 200 programmable U.S. and international 3D onscreen keyboards and panels, can import custom panels from IMGs Build-A-Board Keyboard Designer Tool, and is fully integrateable into a clients hardware / software platform via IMGs Developers Kit. The main focus of the product is to integrate a low level user interface into any pen, tablet, or touchscreen based systems or applications as an alternative to the physical keyboard or membrane panel. It is ideal for use in environments such as automation, handheld, instrumentation, kiosks, medical, military, rugged, whiteboards, or other extremely clean, dirty, or hazardous interactive user environments. A thin client version for Citrix / MS Terminal Server is available.

The latest release of My-T-Touch provides full support for Windows 98 thru Vista, including XP Embedded platforms. Prior releases required different products for different Windows versions. This update allows IMG's OEMs and VARs to integrate a single product into their systems, regardless of the Windows platform they choose.

 

"My-T-Touch provides the perfect complement to Siemens medical products. Being written at the Windows Kernel level, unlike onscreen user interfaces developed in a database, browser, active-x, java, or high-level tools such as Visual Basic, it offers complete control over all Windows functions and applications including network logon, passwords, user input, and ID authentication, without conflicts with the operating system, other applications, or the hardware. Its easy to show or hide the keyboards and unlike physical keyboards or membrane panels, is not subject to vandalism or accidental damage." said Jerry Hussong, IMGs vice president of sales and marketing.

The IMG My-T-Touch, Touch, Pen, and OnScreen product line offers clients the ability to use pre-built layouts or create their own, via IMGs Build-A-Board Keyboard Designer Tool, and present the user with only the necessary interaction. Keys and Panels can be added or removed from the user interface thereby limiting the user input and options in accordance with the clients needs. The products also works with any serial, usb, or PS/2 pointing device, making them equally useful in a wide variety of non pen, tablet, or touchscreen based environments.

My-T-Touch retails for $99.95. Private label, OEM, and custom versions are available. Additional information is at http://www.My-T-Touch.com
