Footswitches, also known as foot pedals, are available in different shapes and sizes many with customisable options. Our footswitches are used for applications in many industries including; Medical, Industrial Machinery and Custom Solutions.

In the majority of instances, a footswitch is selected for use because it allows the operator to multi task.  Using a footswitch means that the user has both hands free to be able to complete work effectively. This is really useful in places such as a call centre, when workers are using a headset to speak on the phone, often a footswitch will be used to answer the phone so that the worker still has both hands free to operate a computer and/or make notes.
