JACKSONVILLE, Fla., July 12, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Seal Shield LLC today announced delivery of the world's first iPad waterproofing solution for healthcare. SEAL SHIELDS™ are form-fitting, polyurethane covers that make iPhones and iPads 100% waterproof, washable and disinfectable. SEAL SHIELDS™ have been developed for the healthcare market to help reduce the spread of infections. Touch screen devices are increasingly prevalent in hospitals, but have been found to pose a cross contamination infection risk for patients and practitioners.
According to University of North Carolina professor, Dr. William Rutala, "There is increasing evidence to support the contribution of the environment to disease transmission, and that we pick up pathogens at the same level by touching the environment as we do by touching the patient."
"Our healthcare customers are using more touch screen devices and they are demanding solutions which not only protect those products from scratches, but also from harmful bacteria and viruses," states Seal Shield CEO, Bradley Whitchurch. "SEAL SHIELDS™ allow practitioners to wash and disinfect their touch screen devices, protecting the healthcare workers and their patients from infection."
SEAL SHIELDS™ are form-fitting skins that make iPhones and iPads 100% waterproof, washable and disinfectable. SEAL SHIELDS™ tightly wrap an iPhone or iPad in a protective shield, making the device impervious to contamination. Unlike bulky cases, SEAL SHIELDS™ are completely invisible, preserving the original Apple design. Developed to help prevent infections in healthcare, SEAL SHIELDS™ are also the best solution for active lifestyles. Ideal for the slopes, the beach, or the boat, SEAL SHIELDS™ make iPhones and iPads 100% waterproof, allowing their use under water, including camera and video functions.
SEAL SHIELDS™ are reusable and recyclable and are priced from $19.99 US. SEAL SHIELDS™ are currently in stock and available internationally through major retailers and distributors for iPhone4, iPhone4s, iPad2 and the NEW iPad(3).
