Cleankeys is revolutionizing the way medical professionals work. The one-wipe-clean wireless keyboard is quickly becoming the new global standard in keyboard infection control. Since launching its latest model in February 2010, sales have increased 295%, with online traffic expanding over 1,000%.
Of all common surfaces, keyboards are one of the most germ-infested – filthier even than public toilet seats according to many studies. In hospitals, keyboards are known to spread infection more than any other surface. Considering more than 100,000 North Americans die from hospital-acquired infections every year, Cleankeys could save lives.
Clinical trials prove that a single wipe with a disinfecting cloth on Cleankeys' smooth surface kills 99% of all bacteria. The same test on standard plastic and rubber keyboards eliminates less than 5%.
Global infection control experts are giving Cleankeys rave reviews. "Cleankeys ticks all my boxes for infection control," says Ron Moody, Health and Safety Manager, National Health Service, UK. "Nothing can be caught or trapped in the keyboard. And with the built-in mouse, it's the perfect solution."
"Viruses like H1N1 and other infectious diseases are spread most commonly through people's hands and shared computer keyboards – but Cleankeys helps stop that spread," says Randy Marsden, CEO of Cleankeys Inc. "Most keyboards aren't used by just one person. Think clinics, schools, food services – any place people share computers. You can share this keyboard without sharing your germs."
