Share Article

Keyboard Specialists Ltd (KBS) have introduced the innovative Medigenic keyboard to their product range to help counter rising rates of Healthcare Acquired Infections (HCAIs), amid growing concern from epidemiologists and hospital infection control staff. Government and business pressures are driving the need for better prevention and control of healthcare acquired infections (HCAI’s) and Keyboard Specialists Ltd have responded by offering an affordable infection control keyboard which prevents cross-contamination and the spread of harmful bacteria in healthcare facilities.

"Medigenic keyboards are ideal for any healthcare environment"

Medigenic (in partnership with the NHS) have designed a smart infection control keyboard which helps monitor its own cleaning status to safeguard both patients and staff. The Medigenic keyboard’s flat design quickly wipes clean with healthcare-grade disinfectants. There are no raised keys to wipe around; no covers requiring replacement or disposal; no reason to disconnect, submerge and dry. The innovative design is cost-effective and makes cleaning the keyboard fast and easy.

Keyboard Specialists Ltd stock all three ground-breaking products manufactured by Medigenic: the Medigenic Essential keyboard, Compliance keyboard and the Medigenic scroll mouse.

The Medigenic Essential keyboard is ideal for dental and doctor’s surgeries or veterinarians; it is clean, cost effective and works perfectly as a medical keyboard, providing excellent tactile key response. As the keyboard has no raised or recessed surfaces bacteria cannot hide underneath a crevice, meaning that the bacterial contamination can be eliminated. The Essential keyboard complies with the most recent of legislations; HTM01-05 compliant passed by the CQC Audits and cleaner, conforms to the Safer Care guidelines and is approved by the Department of Health.

The Medigenic Compliance keyboard is a patented infection control keyboard which monitors its own cleaning status to safeguard both patient and staff. This is done through a flashing light and alarm on the keyboard, which sounds when the keyboard needs cleaning. This alarm is preset by the manufacturer at twelve hours but is user definable, so it can be set in accordance to the environment that the user is in, making it ideal for a busy hospital environment.

The Medigenic Compliance also has a time effective, clever single keystroke feature that disables the keyboard during the cleaning process. This means that no data will be accidently input during cleaning, and the user doesn’t have to waste time unplugging the keyboard. Another benefit of using the Compliance keyboard in a hospital environment is the backlit keys for low light or dark areas. This can be very useful in surgery, where the light is magnified on the patient and may be poor in the other areas of the room where the keyboard may be situated.

Medigenic also manufacture a scroll mouse, which is fully approved by the Department of Health and is fit for any medical environment. The scroll mouse is easy to clean with hospital grade antibacterial wipes and fully sealed to IP65 standard. Keyboard Specialists Ltd offers the Medigenic scroll mouse as well as the Medigenic Essential and Compliance keyboards in a product bundle, in order to keep the price as competitive as possible.

Kieran Ford, Head of Business Development at KBS states: “Both the Medigenic keyboards are ideal for any healthcare environment and offer added protection against the spread of infection, which is absolutely essential for the health and safety of both medical staff and patients.”
