LAS VEGAS, Sept. 21, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- OR Manager Conference - Seal Shield LLC (Jacksonville, FL), today announced the availability of the Silver Seal Glow™ backlit, waterproof keyboard. Developed by Seal Shield for the healthcare market, the Silver Seal Glow™ keyboard is the world's first waterproof, backlit, natural style keyboard constructed with antimicrobial product protection. The Silver Seal Glow™ contains Silver Seal™, an antimicrobial, fungistatic additive that reduces the growth of mold, mildew and odor causing bacteria on the product's surfaces. By utilizing proprietary, waterproof LED lighting with three brightness settings and laser etched keycaps, the Silver Seal Glow™ is ideal for typing in low light environments such as operating rooms. In addition, the Silver Seal Glow™ keyboard is one hundred percent waterproof, fully submersible, washable and easy to clean with sprays, wipes or even in an automatic dishwasher.
A hygienic option for frequently touched surfaces, such as computer keyboards and mice, is imperative in preventing the spread of viruses, germs and bacteria, which are known to harbor in these locations. University of North Carolina conducted a research study which showed that up to 25% of hospital keyboards are contaminated with the Super Bug, MRSA, but disinfecting the keyboards daily can reduce the risk of cross contamination between patients and practitioners.
"Our healthcare customers are demanding hygienic solutions for common touch peripherals, such as keyboards, to help prevent nosocomial infections in hospitals and we are pleased to be able to provide a solution," states Seal Shield CEO, Brad Whitchurch. "We developed the Silver Seal Glow™ to provide a backlit infection control keyboard for low light settings in healthcare, but the product's unique features make it an ideal choice for any environment."
The Silver Seal Glow™ is distributed worldwide at a retail price of $69.99.
