The newly designed AccuMed Medical 540V2 keyboard offers new ultra slim keys whilst still offering an excellent tactile and responsive feel. The keyboard can be fully cleaned and wiped over in literally seconds and also has a handy power on/off button, enabling you to turn the keyboard off during cleaning, preventing keys sending messages to the PC. There is also a cleaning reminder which enables you to set the time span required for cleaning (30min, 1hr, 2hr or 4hr) which aids infection control as the user is prompted to clean this washable keyboard regularly. The 540 still has our NANOARMOUR-2 dual layer antibacterial protection impregnated in the silicone and coated on the surface to aid in deactivating germs/build up of bacteria & virus’s.
This medical keyboard is completely washable, making it HTM 01-05 compliant and ideal for any medical application and clean room environment. For complete ease and comfort the keyboard comes with an angled and contoured base to assist when using on the desk or on your lap/hands. The range are specifically designed for environments which have to meet very high hygienic requirements such as hospitals, dental practices, cosmetic surgeries, doctors, vets, laboratories and in food & pharmaceutical production areas. Not only could these keyboards be used in hygienic areas, they would also be perfect in dusty, dirty and wet situations like workshops, boats and in vehicles.
What is NANOARMOUR and how does it work?…
NANOARMOUR contains silver nano particles which have an antibacterial activity. Silver nano particles have been used on a wide range of high-end medical products and have been proven to help deactivate Escherichia coli, Staphyloccocus aurous and so many more bacteria… The NANOARMOUR properties will help to deactivate bacteria and virus’s. Please contact us if you would like a test report on the technology used.
As the silver nano particles size is about 1-20 nm while the bacteria cell size is 100-1000 nm, silver nano particles can enter into the cell then release the silver ion to combine with thiol, carboxyl, hydroxyl group in cell to deactivate the following functions:
1 – Combine with respiratory enzyme to cause suffocation
2 – Bind with protease enzyme and cause indegestion
3 – Bind with DNA’s and inhibit cell replication
After the bacterial cell functions are disturbed by the silver nano particles, cell damage and the death of the bacteria cell occur, also inhibiting cell reproduction.
