Seal Shield, LLC Invents Hygienic Computer Keyboard to Combat the Spread of Germs Healthcare company announces the world's first IBM style, backlit, washable keyboard, in response to contaminated computer keyboards in hospitals.
LAS VEGAS, Nev., Jan. 7, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Seal Shield, LLC, Jacksonville, FL, today announced the Silver Seal Glow™ backlit, waterproof keyboard. Developed for the healthcare market, the Silver Seal Glow™ is the world's first waterproof, backlit, natural style keyboard constructed with antimicrobial product protection. Unlike other keyboards, the Silver Seal Glow™ uses proprietary, waterproof LED lighting, making the product ideal for typing in low light environments. Additionally, the Silver Seal Glow™ contains Silver Seal™, an antimicrobial, fungistatic additive which reduces the growth of mold, mildew and odor causing bacteria on the product's surfaces. The Silver Seal Glow™ keyboard is one hundred percent waterproof, fully submersible and washable. The Silver Seal Glow™ is easy to clean with sprays, wipes or even in an automatic dishwasher. Regular cleaning with healthcare grade disinfectants can help prevent the spread of germs, viruses and bacteria, which are known to harbor on frequently touched surfaces.
According to a University of North Carolina Research Study, up to 25% of hospital keyboards are contaminated with the Super Bug, MRSA, but daily disinfecting of the keyboards can reduce the risk of cross contamination to patients and practitioners.
"Our healthcare customers are demanding hygienic solutions for common touch peripherals, such as keyboards, to help prevent nosocomial infections in hospitals," 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 the ideal solution for any environment."
The Silver Seal Glow™ is available from distributors at a retail price of $69.99 US. The product is one of several new waterproof and antimicrobial solutions that Seal Shield will be introducing at the Consumer Electronics Show, beginning January 7, 2014 in Las Vegas, NV.
