The medical industry has long depended on CSI Keyboards’ membrane switch and touch screen technology to serve as the user interface for their products. Our custom membrane switches and human machine interfaces offer a professional and finished appearance to a product. We design our medical interfaces and keypads with a continuous surface that covers any display or window, as well as the electronics that sit inside of the product. The smooth and continuous surface allows for easy sterilization and cleaning of the custom medical keypad.
In the medical environment, it is crucial for the keypad or interface to be both environmentally sealed and durable. CSI utilizes our 30+ years of experience designing and manufacturing membrane switches to provide our customers with a product that will perform and withstand the wear and tear of daily use.

Medical Touch Screen & Display Full Solution Interfaces
Many medical companies rely on CSI Keyboards to design touch screen and display interfaces into their applications and products. Using optical bonding or adhesive bonding, CSI Keyboards can provide a fully integrated touch screen + display solution to meet your medical requirements. Our touch screen solutions can then be integrated with a graphic overlay, membrane keypad, rubber switch, or bezel for a complete value added assembly. CSI interfaces are carefully designed and built to survive in any environment. Our touch screen solutions can be sealed to prevent moisture and contaminant ingress and are designed to withstand repeated use and chemical cleaning.
Antimicrobial Membrane Keypads
One of our newer technologies in the custom medical keyboard world has been our antimicrobial capabilities. CSI Keyboards offers antimicrobial membrane keypad technology perfect for medical applications, providing protection against a many bacteria including Ecoli and MRSA. The antimicrobial polyester is extremely durable and resistant to scratching, scuffing, chemicals and solvents, while offering excellent tactile feel.
