What Are the 3 Best Washable Keyboards?

As our healthcare workers continue to support the health and wellness of our global communities, innovative solutions are necessary to keep hospitals and healthcare settings clean to improve patient outcomes. This includes the frequent cleaning of high-touch equipment such as keyboards and mice.

High-touch surfaces such as keyboards are one of the causes of spreading infectious diseases in hospitals and other healthcare settings. A study published in BMJ Open focusing on over 2000 computer-related devices tested for bacterial content in healthcare situations found that “The overall proportion of contamination ranged from 24% to 100%.”

Another healthcare scenario is the constant movement of shared computer peripherals into and out of patient rooms by doctors, nurses, and other healthcare professionals. A recent study showed that samples taken from keyboards and mice in patient rooms and analyzed for bacteria showed that there were contaminated samples from keyboards and mice compared with positive results from other fomites within patients’ rooms.

To help combat the spread of germs, Seal Shield is at the forefront of this effort to provide cleanable peripherals for healthcare and other vulnerable environments. Seal Shield offers a range of products including washable and waterproof keyboards and mice, UV-resistant screen protectors, and UV-C sanitization systems.

Seal Shield began by introducing the first washable keyboard to the healthcare industry in 2006. The company continues to be a leader in the waterproof and UV sanitization solutions industry while expanding their product line to meet the needs of healthcare, education, public safety, retail, restaurants and other public and private settings.

Seal Shield keyboards with a IPX5 rating like the Seal Storm, means that the keyboard is washable and spillproof. Keyboards with an IP68 rating mean the keyboard is fully waterproof and can be submerged in water or even cleaned in a dishwasher.
