The Scene of the Crime: THE computer Room 

t the end of the 1990s, com­put­er rooms were enjoy­ing grow­ing pop­u­lar­i­ty in schools Since then, many stu­dents have opened their first web­site, cre­at­ed their first e‑mail address, typed the first lines into a Word file or pro­grammed an “If:then func­tion” in Excel. It was an excit­ing time…  


These com­put­er rooms still exist today but their use has become much more inten­sive due to advanc­ing dig­i­tal­iza­tion. In addi­tion to taking reg­u­lar com­put­er sci­ence lessons, pupils and stu­dents now solve math­e­mat­i­cal prob­lems, learn lan­guages and even take exam­i­na­tions there. 


But as dif­fer­ent as the uses of the rooms in the two sce­nar­ios described above are, one thing always remains the same — a key­board and a mouse pass through a mul­ti­tude of hands. This is any­thing but hygienic.

the Keyboard — A Bacterial and viral  biotope


Due to their con­struc­tion and sur­face char­ac­ter­is­tics, con­ven­tion­al tac­tile sen­sors are a true par­adise for the repro­duc­tion of virus­es, bac­te­ria and germs. Dust and oth­er dirt par­ti­cles can eas­i­ly pen­e­trate between the keys and are very dif­fi­cult to remove. Dirt and aerosols also tend to set­tle on the sur­faces. These are stub­born and wip­ing with a damp cloth doesn’t real­ly helpThe logi­cal consequence? 


The mul­ti­pli­ca­tion and spread of pathogens! 


The sit­u­a­tion is par­tic­u­lar­ly pre­car­i­ous in the autumn and win­ter months, when norovirus and influen­za are increas­ing­ly com­mon

washable keyboards and mice 

A clean and safe alter­na­tive is wash­able key­boards. Unlike con­ven­tion­al input devices, no par­ti­cles can pen­e­trate between the indi­vid­ual keys. 

A sil­i­cone-coat­ed sur­face allows thor­ough cleansing with water and sub­se­quent treat­ment with a dis­in­fec­tant com­pletes the job.

In com­bi­na­tion with a hygien­ic mouse, it makes work­ing on the PCsan­i­tary and safe oper­a­tion.
