The award-winning Touch™ X pushes haptic capabilities to the next level
For 3D modeling and design, surgical training, virtual assembly, and other procedures that require a higher degree of precision, Touch X is an easy-to-use, affordable option that pairs perfectly with Geomagic Freeform® for the perfect design interface.
Touch X haptic devices allow a user to feel 3D on-screen objects by applying force feedback on the user’s hand, and the Touch X delivers expanded, true-to-life sensations with a more fluid feel and lower friction. Its durability, affordability, and accuracy make the Touch X haptic device ideal for commercial, medical, and research applications, especially when compactness and portability matter.
Leading OEMs choose the Touch X and integrate it into their products in a number of interactive virtual environments such as surgical simulators and machine component visualization
The Touch X allows surgical interns to perform accurate virtual surgeries and learn the feel of a correct procedure before entering the clinical environment. Its compact design and accurate feel provide a true-to-life experience and field of movement.
Research and Development Applications
Touch X is an integral piece in many university- and research center-based haptic applications. Touch X provides the ideal balance of affordability, flexibility, and precision that’s important to budget-conscious research projects in fields like medical rehabilitation, biomedicine, and robotics.
The award-winning Touch X haptic device provides an affordable desktop solution and is ideal for customers who are performing certain types of haptic research.
