Best Practices for Infection Control Keyboards

University College London Hospital,   as presented at APIC 

UCLH Microbiologists led a study on the effectiveness of two types of silicone rubber medical grade keyboards - those with raised keys, and those with flat surfaces and reminder alerts.

Results include:

  • Reduction of MRSA bacteria on the surface of keyboards
  • Staff compliance to cleaning protocols with and without alert
  • Type-ability of silicone keyboards with flat surfaces vs. raised keys

Wiping Hand

Easy to Clean Flat Surface

Can be wiped down in less than 10 seconds right where you use it - no need to disconnect and take it to a dishwasher. The flat surface leaves nowhere for pathogens to hide.

Typing Fingers

Easy Typing

The silicon rubber surface is soft to the touch and flexible, enabling users to type on the high quality scissor keys underneath with ease.

Alert LED

Patented Alert System

The Medigenic keyboard offers a built in alert system that lets users know when it is time to clean the keyboard, helping to ensure compliance with Infection Control protocols.
