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.
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 mice. Depending 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!
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.
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.
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.
