Seal Shield, LLC introduces new waterproof and antimicrobial protected keyboard, at HIMSS healthcare show (booth # 6445).

ORLANDO, Fla., Feb. 24, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Seal Shield, LLC, Jacksonville, FL, today announced the Clean Wipe™ Medical Grade Keyboard.  Developed for the healthcare market, the Clean Wipe™ is the world's first waterproof (IP-68), chiclet style keyboard constructed with antimicrobial product protection.  The Seal Shield Clean Wipe™ is a low profile, small form factor keyboard with short travel, chiclet style keys.  It is available in USB wired or Bluetooth® wireless versions.  The Seal Shield Clean Wipe™ keyboard is one hundred percent waterproof, fully submersible, washable and dishwasher safe.  The keyboard includes an optional, form fitted, transparent silicone cover which allows it to be quickly disinfected with sprays or sanitizing wipes. Additionally, the Clean Wipe™ keyboard is protected by Silver Seal™, an antimicrobial, fungistatic additive which reduces the growth of mold, mildew and odor causing bacteria on the product's surfaces.

Developed for the healthcare market, the Clean Wipe™ Keyboard is the world's first waterproof (IP-68), chiclet style keyboard constructed with antimicrobial product protection. It is available in USB wired or Bluetooth® wireless versions.

According to University of North Carolina epidemiologist, 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. But, 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."

"Our healthcare customers are demanding hygienic keyboard solutions to help prevent nosocomial infections," states Seal Shield CEO, Brad Whitchurch. "We developed the Seal Shield Clean Wipe™ in response to demand for a keyboard which had natural style tactics, but could be quickly, easily and effectively cleaned in an emergency room, operating room, surgery center or dental clinic."

The Seal Shield Clean Wipe™ keyboard is currently in stock and available from distributors at a retail price of $69.99 US (corded) or $99.99 US (Bluetooth®).  

Seal Shield is a world leader in infection control technology, specializing in washable electronics and antimicrobial science. Seal Shield designs, develops and manufactures medical grade, infection prevention technology for hospitals and the home, including waterproof keyboards, mice, TV remotes and protection products for smart phones and tablets.
