Ascom Myco 2 – Inspired by caregivers. Built for care giving

From its unique top display to its durable casing, from its sturdy carrying clip to its easy-to-read screen, every aspect of the Ascom Myco 2 is designed to meet the challenges of Healthcare environments.

The plastic casing is made from Lexan EXL resin, a polycarbonate (PC) copolymer formulation that offers superior impact and low temperature ductility compared to standard PC grades. The Ascom Myco is built to withstand regular cleaning and disinfecting, and is dust and water resistant to IP54 standard.

We’ve shaped the Ascom Myco 2 to make it a comfortable, ergonomic work companion. The screen, too, is specially designed for frontline staff. It’s just the right size for legibility, but compact enough for easy single-handed use.

The carrying clip, NFC reader, IR receiver and barcode scanner have all been carefully placed for maximum usability. And the top display lets caregivers read about incoming medical alerts without them having to handle the device.   

The Ascom Myco 2. Designed by professionals. Used by professionals.
