Seal Shield Computer Keyboards Control Infection in the Dishwasher

Saturday, January 18th, 2014

SealShield_keyboardDid you know your keyboards at home and at work are the dirtiest places in our lives? Seal Shield knows and they’ve created the best solution out there, a completely washable keyboard line that’s actually dishwasher safe! Health Tech Weekly host Jamie Davis, the Podmedic got the chance to chat with SealShield CEO Brad Whitchurch in the digital health pavilion at the International CES conference this year about their brand new products for the office and home.

The Seal Shield line of washable keyboards is the perfect solution for health care workplaces where infection control is among the biggest concerns right now. By preventing the spread of infection, patients heal faster and are sent home sooner, reducing health care costs to all of us. The Seal Shield site says it best:

“Today’s active life is touch-dependent. Whether it is a computer keyboard or mouse, a TV remote, an MP3 player, earphones or cell phones, the technology that is so interlaced with all we do depends on touch. Yet, common touch surfaces can harbor bacteria and spread infection. As a result, consumers are looking to buy products that have antimicrobial protection …”

In addition to the keyboard line, there is also a complete line of mobile device protection products for tablets and smartphones. Brad and Jamie show several of the products in this video, showing off their water proof nature as they are submerged in a tub of water and still work like new. You can find the whole line of Seal Shield products at their website at SealShield.com. All of the products in this video are available now!

KBCovers: Secret Weapon for Creative Types

Friday, February 10th, 2012

The Need for Speed

Mousing around is one of the not-so-secret productivity killers, stealing time from creative types around the world. Keyboard shortcuts allow you to keep your fingers in motion – but unless you excel in the game “Missing MatchUps” with your kids, it’s hard to remember hundreds of combinations. And they are all standard patterns, except when they aren’t – like between every applications that you need to use on your project.

KBCovers offers a full range of apps. In both US and European keyboards, for video and photo editing, the covers are made of ultra thin silicone, and offer full color coding to help you learn and remember the shortcuts for your daily use.

Keyboard covers – You need one!

Saturday, January 22nd, 2011

Keyboard covers, why do you need it?

In case you spill food and liquids on your keyboard?  Sure, but that is NOT why you are going to want the best quality keyboard covers on the market from KB Covers.  You want these covers because they give you all the shortcuts for professional programs such as Final Cut Pro, Aperture, After Effects etc.

I own FOUR of them.  I was so impressed that I ended up ordering them the same day I did this interview with the KB Covers team on the floor at CES.  I especially like the cover that shows all the typical Apple iOS shortcuts.  I am buying a stack of them to give to some of my friends who recently bought their first Macbook.  What better way to learn the new operating system while protecting your laptop from accidental Lattés at the same time?

These keyboard covers are made for Apple products, so PC lovers will have to wait and see if a PC line is on the move.

If you are a touch typist (or working on it) you can get a cover that hides the print on your keys, which is a fantastic way to accelerate your typing skills.  I have been using blank keyboards for years because it keeps my typing skills up to code and it makes it easier when you switch between different languages since the print on the keys only match one language.

3 months ago, I bought a silicone keyboard cover in the Apple store and I hated it.  I don’t remember what brand it was but I threw it away after only two days.  It felt icky and it made it difficult to type.  I have been using the covers from KB Covers for two weeks and I love them.  I bought the covers for the Macbook Pro Unibody, which has the added bonus of also fitting perfectly the small wireless keyboard from Apple.

Check them out!  This is one product I can personally vouch for.
