Health and infection prevention 

Autumn is here and with it the typ­i­cal cold sea­son. The weath­er is cold and wet, now cold virus­es are in high sea­son. Peo­ple are once again spend­ing more time indoors and using pub­lic trans­port more often than cycling to work. In addi­tion, the dry heat­ing air dries out the mucous mem­branes and reduces the blood cir­cu­la­tion in the mucous mem­branes.

The med­i­cine chest is already well stocked. But what about pro­tec­tive every­day com­pan­ions, such as the com­mu­ni­ty masks, face shields or even your data input devices such as spe­cial hygiene key­boards and mice? Hygiene is and remains one of the most effec­tive weapons against infec­tion with pathogens. Our GETTSafe prod­uct range offers you effec­tive pro­tec­tion and helps you to mas­ter the cold sea­son in a healthy and vital way.

We have com­piled a white paper with 14 use­ful tips that you can eas­i­ly inte­grate into your every­day life and pro­tect you from infec­tious dis­eases!

Stay healthy!

It is true that main­tain­ing good hygiene, like wash­ing your hands reg­u­lar­ly and thor­ough­ly, pro­vides a cer­tain degree of pro­tec­tion from virus­es and bac­te­ria, but aerosols can be released through cough­ing and sneez­ing, which then set­tle on the direct sur­round­ings. 

A lack of hygiene can cost lives!

It is worth reg­u­lar­ly clean­ing and dis­in­fect­ing items that peo­ple often touch.

The sit­u­a­tion in hygiene-sen­si­tive areas like hos­pi­tals, doc­tors’ prac­tices and nurs­ing homes is par­tic­u­lar­ly crit­i­cal.  Pathogens are very fre­quent­ly encoun­tered here. Although it is absolute­ly essen­tial to main­tain hygiene stan­dards, this often does not take place with the nec­es­sary care. A lack of time and human resources is often the rea­son for this. As many as 20,000 peo­ple die just from hos­pi­tal germs in Ger­many every year. Peo­ple with a weak immune sys­tem are par­tic­u­lar­ly at risk.

The same chal­lenge affects also oth­er pub­lic places. Wher­ev­er many peo­ple meet every day (author­i­ties such as the police or Fed­er­al Labour Agency, banks or phar­ma­cies) there is an increased risk of infec­tion.

Recommendation by the Robert Koch Institute!

The Ger­man government’s cen­tral insti­tu­tion in the field of mon­i­tor­ing and pre­vent­ing sick­ness­es specif­i­cal­ly rec­om­mends that peo­ple pur­chase and use “spe­cial key­boards that can be dis­in­fect­ed” and has a link with a selec­tion of prod­ucts on its home page. These units must have “the rel­e­vant design,” accord­ing to the RKI. You can find the com­plete report here.

In order to pre­vent invis­i­ble risk sit­u­a­tions, it there­fore rec­om­mends that peo­ple use spe­cial hygien­ic key­boards and miceDepend­ing on whether the mod­el is made of glass or sil­i­cone, it is pos­si­ble to thor­ough­ly clean and dis­in­fect the key­board and mouse because of their enclosed sur­face.

It is then hard­ly pos­si­ble for any virus­es and bac­te­ria to gath­er there!

Keyboards are a paradise for germs

Data input devices like key­boards and PC mice are seri­ous­ly under­es­ti­mat­ed as sources of germs in every­day med­ical sit­u­a­tions.

Germs gath­er in cracks and grooves and mul­ti­ply. A British con­sumer mag­a­zine already dis­cov­ered in 2008 that there are more germs present on com­put­er key­boards than on many toi­let seats!

This is par­tic­u­lar­ly dis­as­trous in inten­sive care units. Patients lying there are often seri­ous­ly ill and their immune sys­tem is defi­cient. 

Glass keyboards

Glass key­boards are ide­al for use in hygiene-sen­si­tive areas. Due to the closed sur­face the pen­e­tra­tion of dirt and pathogens is not pos­si­ble. Fur­ther­more, they can be eas­i­ly cleaned with a wipe.

Silicone keyboards

The sil­i­cone key­board is also a hygiene key­board and should be used in work­places where clean­li­ness and hygiene are of the utmost impor­tance. The insen­si­tiv­i­ty of wash­able key­boards to dirt and water makes it easy to clean the key­board under run­ning water or to immerse the key­board in a water basin.

Washable PC-mice

With our wash­able PC mice a health risk trans­mit­ted by germs and bac­te­ria is min­i­mized. The pro­tec­tion class IP68 and IP65 pre­vents the ingress of water and dust and allows an uncom­pli­cat­ed, fast and thor­ough clean­ing.
