COEUR D'ALENE, IDAHO, June 1, 2006—Advanced Input Systems recently introduced the Medigenic infection-control keyboard and mouse to address the growing concern for bacterial cross contamination via hospital keyboards. The Medigenic keyboard uniquely helps monitor its own cleaning status to safeguard both patient and staff. Conventional keyboard tactile feedback allows for high speed data entry while the flat design enables quick cleaning with hospital-grade disinfectants.
Brad Lawrence, President of Advanced Input said at the time of the product release, “The number of keyboards with multiple users is growing exponentially in hospitals as they drive to computerize patient records to increase efficiency, patient safety and security. At the same time there is growing concern that these same keyboards can be a source of bacterial contamination leading to hospital acquired infections. The Medigenic keyboard offers a unique solution that reminds the users that the keyboard and mouse need to be cleaned at regular intervals. The smooth surface of the keyboard makes the cleaning process simple and yet does not significantly impact the users normal work activity.”
