    I am looking at the various designs for shrouded footswitches. I have seen everything from complete coverage such as the link here, https://www.steute.com/en/meditec/products/1-pedal-medical-foot-switches/mgfs-med.html to a piece of U shaped wire such as the link here - https://www.steute.com/en/meditec/products/1-pedal-medical-foot-switches/kf-med-gp11.html . I have a hard time believing that the U shaped wire would pass 60601-2-22, Clause 201.8.10.4.101. However, I can see the need for a lightweight footswitch in a surgical theater. Has anyone worked with the 60601-2-22 standard and formed an opinion on the definition of a "shrouded footswitch"?
