Neonode Contactless Touch Curbs Pathogen Transmission in Hospitals and Public Spaces


 May 22, 2020

Enabling contactless interaction with touchscreens and button panels, Neonode has optomized its zForce® Touch Solutions to reducing pathogen transmission in hospitals and other public spaces. Transmission of health care-associated pathogens that have been shed onto touchscreens and button panels such as elevator buttons, vending machines, information boards, and electronic menus in fast food restaurants create well-documented public health risks. Neonode zForce Touch Solutions mitigates these risks by delivering contact-free interaction with graphical user interface (GUIs).

A zForce Touch sensor mounted along one edge of a display provides an interaction area positioned a desired distance above the display surface. By making the interaction area hover above the display surface, users experience touch interaction without actually coming in contact with the display, reducing the risks of shedding and receiving health care-associated pathogens through contact with the display.

A zForce Touch sensor can also be mounted beneath a panel of buttons, such as an elevator panel, to enable riders to select their floor without touching the buttons.

  • Laser light touch sensor based on light reflections that can be integrated and used in wide range of applications
  • Enable contactless interaction on any surface including stone, metal, wood 
  • No need for overlays that compromise image quality
  • Can scan up to 50% faster than traditional P-Cap touch sensors for 15.6” sized displays
  • Ideal for circumstances when users need stable touch interaction using gloves or other types of inputs
