Medigenic Keyboards and Mouse
Infection control keyboards are designed to provide smarter prevention and control of contaminants such as hospital-acquired infections (HAIs). Manufactured by Advanced Input Systems, the Medigenic range of keyboards include the Medigenic Compliance, the only keyboard designed in collaboration with the NHS for use in healthcare settings.
There are strong arguments for improved infection control methodology where computer keyboards collect biological contaminants and require attention to maintain disinfection. Designed to improve hygiene, control infection and reduce costs, the Medigenic range is suitable for any location where computers are used in clean environments – hospitals, medical centres, healthcare organisations, vets, dentists and cleanrooms.
The keyboards in the Medigenic range feature a flat design to enable quick and easy cleaning with hospital-grade disinfectants and wipes. In addition, they feature conventional keyboard tactile feedback for high-speed data entry and accuracy.
The Medigenic range is backed by over 30 years’ experience in the provision of technologies to healthcare, medical and industrial markets.
According to NICE clinical guidelines, MRSA and HAIs cost the NHS £1,000,000,000 each year. To address this issue, leading microbiologists at UCLH worked in partnership with Medigenic to develop the Compliance keyboard.
"MRSA costs UCLH £1.9m every year mostly in prolonged inpatient stays. However, the Trust has calculated that the keyboards will pay for themselves if they help cut the number of MRSA cases by an average of just ten a year. This is a significant step forward in the battle against infections like MRSA. You can run education campaigns to get people to wash their hands more often but the impact only lasts for about eight weeks. But with these keyboards you have got a constant reminder of the importance of washing your hands and keeping your computer clean.
