Washable, Backlit Keyboard Designed for Infection Control in Medical EnvironmentsJust in time for flu season, Econo-Keys has announced the launch of a backlit, disinfectable keyboard designed for use in medical applications.

As a result of 2009’s deadly H1N1 outbreak, hospitals and consumers alike have enhanced efforts to combat cross-contamination in shared spaces. Studies show that frequent hand washing and disinfection of high-touch surfaces, such as computer keyboards, are crucial steps in combating the spread of the influenza virus, along with other potentially harmful bacteria.

Built in a fully sealed, industrial silicone case, the EKB-106 is a completely washable, waterproof keyboard designed for quick and easy disinfection. Unlike a standard desktop keyboard, the EKB-106 has no cracks or crevices to harbor bacteria, dirt, or spilled liquids.

Full disinfection of the EKB-106 can be done in less than one minute with any hospital-grade disinfectant spray or wipe.

EKB-106 features blue LED backlighting, providing a clearly illuminated key legend for ambient-light use. The EKB-106 also features a full-size keyboard layout with a large, 10-key numeric pad.

The EKB-106 has a lengthy 5.25-foot USB cable, requires no drivers or additional software, and is compatible with Windows and Mac operating systems.
