ORLANDO, Fla., Feb. 25 /PRNewswire/ -- Seal Shield LLC today introduced
the new SILVER SEAL(TM) Washable, Antimicrobial Mouse at the HiMSS
Healthcare Symposium in Orlando, FL. According to the company, the SILVER
SEAL(TM) Mouse is the world's first computer mouse to be fully submersible,
dishwasher safe, and manufactured from SILVER SEAL(TM) Antimicrobial
plastic. The new SILVER SEAL(TM) mouse has been created to help reduce the
risk of cross contaminations, including Influenza and the "superbug," MRSA.
The new SILVER SEAL(TM) Mouse is a companion product to the company's
SILVER SEAL(TM) Washable, Antimicrobial Keyboard, which began shipping
earlier this month.
Influenza (the flu) is a contagious respiratory illness caused by
influenza viruses. It can cause severe illness, and can lead to death.
According to the CDC (Center for Disease Control), 5% to 20% of the
population gets the flu annually; more than 200,000 people are hospitalized
from flu complications, and about 36,000 people die from flu. Bacterial
infections can occur as co-infections with influenza or occur following
influenza infection. Last year, CDC noted an increase in flu and
Staphylococcus aureus (staph infection) co-infections among children who
had died or were hospitalized with influenza infection. Some of those
infections were with the antibiotic resistant "superbug," MRSA.
SILVER SEAL(TM) protects against infections. Unlike other antibacterial
products, the SILVER SEAL(TM) antimicrobial plastic utilizes all natural,
pure silver ions embedded in the plastic to create a safe and effective
antimicrobial solution. Silver is a natural antibacterial product and its
properties have been incorporated into the SILVER SEAL(TM) Keyboard using
state of the art, nanotechnology. The combination of SILVER SEAL(TM)
plastic and SEAL SHIELD(TM) washable technology results in the highest
level of cross contamination protection available in an input device today.
"The new SILVER SEAL(TM) Mouse is the best in class infection control
mouse on the market. It is manufactured with an ergonomic shape for maximum
comfort and ease of use, but it is unique in that it is ANTIMICROBIAL and
DISHWASHER SAFE," states Seal Shield CEO, Brad Whitchurch. "The SILVER
SEAL(TM) Mouse is the perfect companion to our already popular, SILVER
SEAL(TM) Washable, Antimicrobial Keyboard. The SILVER SEAL(TM) Keyboard and
Mouse are the most effective infection control input devices on the market
Seal Shield is currently accepting orders for the SILVER SEAL(TM)
Mouse, which will begin shipping in March. The SILVER SEAL(TM) Mouse has a
suggested retail price of $69.99, with a street price of approximately $40
when purchased through authorized distributors including Dell, CDW,
Corporate Express, Insight, Synnex and other resellers.
