Cirque Corporation, a wholly owned subsidiary of Alps Electric Co., Ltd. and a leader in the capacitance technology industry, today announced that its touchpad products have been selected by Volcano Corporation for use in Volcano’s new intravascular ultrasound (IVUS) console.

Cirque’s technology was selected for Volcano’s s5i Bedside Touchpad Controller due to its configurability, ease of integration and its sealed design – crucial for medical applications – in addition to other benefits it offered over similar technologies.

The Volcano controller is a compact touchpad configured for button input and cursor type control that allows physicians to operate the Volcano IVUS system without having to leave the sterile field. Using the touchpad for the input device makes the overall size of the device significantly smaller than that of the previous product generation.

“For physicians, staff and patients to benefit from the simplified workflow of Volcano’s integrated s5i IVUS system, it was essential for us to provide bedside control of the s5i from the convenience of the sterile field,” said Joe Burnett, associate vice president of marketing for Volcano Corporation. “Our research and development team searched through a number of different control point options, and the flexibility and customization of the Cirque touchpad controller provided us with the compact solution we have been looking for.”

In addition to the medical field, Cirque’s original GlidePoint technology has applications in multiple products and an ever-growing number of markets. It is currently found in laptops, keyboards, handheld devices and countless other computing devices throughout the world. It enables complete navigational control of any graphical interface, packed in a space-saving, low-friction and extremely durable touchpad.

“The sealed design of our Glidepoint touchpads is optimal for medical environments, and it’s a great fit for Volcano’s new IVUS controller,” said Douglas Moore, vice president of Cirque. “Volcano is a highly valued customer, and we look forward to continuing to work together in the coming years.”
