WetKey has added a new medical keyboard to its product line that addresses increasing concerns for public health, including infection prevention. The SaniType® “Swipe Clean” Smooth Surface Washable Keyboard is a crevice-free, flat surface keyboard that can be wiped clean and sanitized with ease.
Other medical-grade keyboards are overlooked fomites that can cause the spread of deadly infections in the healthcare field. Spaces between computer keys contain gaps and grooves where blood, debris, and microbes hide. Finding efficient ways to clean medical keyboards decreases the spread of infections.
The SaniType Swipe Clean is a fully sealed keyboard built-tough to withstand routine cleaning and sanitation protocols. The smooth surface makes cleaning procedures like the “spray-wipe-spray” method easier and more efficient, reducing the time needed between patients, saving time and lives.
The Swipe Clean model has raised keys that provide tactile feedback underneath a permanent cover allowing for efficient and easy typing for healthcare professionals. It can be cleaned and sanitized in one swipe making routine cleaning easy in between patients.
