100% Waterproof & Washable
Medical keyboards have recently become recognized as an important and cost-effective tool for infection prevention.
A study performed by Dr. William Rutala, University of North Carolina, found that as many as 25% of hospital keyboards tested positive for the deadly super bug, MRSA (the washability of Seal Shield keyboards enables them to address this problem), daily disinfecting is an effective deterrent to cross contamination.
Seal Shield manufactures medical keyboards which are priced like standard keyboards and type like standard keyboards but have unique features which make them ideal medical keyboards. Seal Shield recommends that its medical keyboards be washed regularly, to eliminate pathogens on the surface, thereby protecting the users.
