Designed for securing patient health information, our compatible product leverages Nymi Band™ technology to offer unmatched biometric security and user convenience in compliance with HIPAA.

The Nymi Band touchless biometric workplace wearable can be worn under PPE and in GMP validated environments.  Continuous authentication is critical to your zero trust strategy, and touchless credentialing supports good workplace hygiene.  Layered with a contactless rf IDEAS® card reader, the keyboard offers a multifactor solution that eliminates the need for passwords.  The card reader is compatible with leading healthcare single sign on authentication platforms, including Imprivata®, HealthCast, and many more.  Our patented, integrated LinkSmart® cleaning button with San-a-Key® fights infection at the desktop.  Keyboard features are routed through one USB cable to conserve valuable thin and zero client ports.

Featuring a durable, impervious silicone surface that prevents the growth of harmful bacteria, the Nymi Band™ compatible keyboard is the perfect size for placement on medical carts.  Productivity will never suffer when using the KSI 1800 series during patient bedside care — easy-to-read backlit keys with three levels of illumination ensure continued workflow in darkened patient rooms.

A simple push of KSI’s LinkSmart® cleaning button temporarily disables keys while an end user disinfects the keyboard surface.  San-a-Key® software’s onscreen, animated keyboard schematic then guides keyboard cleaning until the entire surface is clean.   Hospital administrators can count on user-defined, scheduled cleaning options and pop-up reminders pushed to all desktops to ensure KSI keyboards are kept clean 24/7.

The KSI-1802R SX HB-21 NY is an all-in-one desktop solution for fast, convenient access control and aids in the fight against hospital-acquired infection.
