Hoffmann + Krippner (http://www.hoffmann-krippner.com) is now partnering with WetKeys Washable Keyboards (http://www.wetkeys.com), a leading online-retailer of washable keyboards, to supply their keywi CleanBoard® medical-grade keyboards to hospitals, medical offices and facilities observing strict hygiene regulations. Jens Kautzor, Sales Director at H+K says: “We are very excited about this partnership. With WetKeys we have found a reliable and well respected online distributor and we are looking forward to a successful and long-term business relationship.” Hoffmann + Krippner will be exhibiting their CleanBoard® as well as customizable medical control units at the APIC 2011 in Baltimore, MD on June 27 – 29, 2011 (Booth # 303).

As PC keyboards are known to be breeding grounds for germs and viruses, hazardous conditions arise for both patients and staff due to possible cross contamination. Typical computer keyboards are difficult to disinfect and commonly used keyboard covers become porous after frequent cleaning. The CleanBoard® features a high-end non-porous film surface, resistant to disinfection liquids and alcohol. It is splash proof due to its fully sealed surface according to IP 65 / NEMA 4X. A disinfection reminder is integrated into the CleanBoard® via LED lights, monitoring recommended intervals between cleaning to ensuring sanitary operation. It is not necessary to disconnect the keyboard from any medical devices or remove it from the current operating location for routine cleaning, as all keys can be disabled by simply pressing one key.

The CleanBoard® is equipped with an integrated mousepad and number block, compatible with 10 finger typing. As application requirements may differ, a fully sealed Mini-CleanBoard® and external CleanMouse® are available as well. All products are Plug & Play enabled via a USB connector, simplifying installation procedures. Both keyboard models and mouse are available for immediate purchase at http://www.wetkeys.com/cleanboard.
