A digital update for hospitals!

Are you already ben­e­fit­ing from the Hos­pi­tal Future Fund?

The Ger­man par­lia­ment adopt­ed the Hos­pi­tal Future Act on 18 Sep­tem­ber 2020. The fed­er­al and state gov­ern­ments are mak­ing avail­able funds of up to EUR 4.3 bil­lion. Ger­man Health Min­is­ter Jens Spahn is using this invest­ment pro­gram to pro­vide a dig­i­tal update for hos­pi­tals. This will encour­age nec­es­sary invest­ments, includ­ing those for orga­niz­ing pro­ce­dures, com­mu­ni­ca­tions and documentation.

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 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!


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.
