The KSI-1801 SX is the most innovative hospital-grade infection control keyboard for the prevention of cross contamination and the spread of germs and disease in the clinical environment.

There are 100,000 hospital-acquired-infection-associated deaths in the United States each year — most are preventable with the right tools.  Conventional computer keyboards are not appropriate for the clinical desktop, are not manufactured specifically for infection prevention, and do not feature the sealed matrix of a disinfectable keyboard like KSI-1801 SX.

The KSI-1801 SX stands alone as an unconventional infection control keyboard that not only answers all the needs of infection prevention professionals, but takes the process of infection control to a whole new level with user-defined software and advanced technology that makes our cleanable keyboard truly unique.

Electronic health records require that clinicians spend as much as 50% of their shifts entering data.  Just knowing that a cleanable keyboard can be disinfected between use by anyone at anytime can give users incredible peace of mind.  Use of a cleanable multiple-ways-to-clean-ksi-1801keyboard on a hospital-wide basis also gives infection preventionists, whose task it is to reduce HAIs, the ability to monitor and control the spread of germs at this key point of transmission.

1801 colors with box resampleThe LinkSmart® washable keyboard with San-a-Key® and its patented, real-time enterprise-managed analytics is unique.  This unprecedented combination of smart hardware, featuring the LinkSmart® keyboard and San-a-Key® software, linked smartly together, gives infection preventionists the knowledge of who, when and where one or all of our hospital grade keyboards were cleaned.

1801 Cleaning ButtonUser-defined notifications are pushed to the desktop, indicating the keyboard is in need of disinfecting.  To clean, the keyboard’s LinkSmart® disinfect button is pushed to immediately disengage its keys from the computer system.  LEDs on the keyboard flash simultaneously, indicating cleaning mode that allows the freedom to scrub, wipe and spray the surface without input of errant data.  An onscreen keyboard diagram displays the keys being cleaned one by one. When keyboard disinfection is complete, the screen displays a message that the surface has been disinfected and is ready for use!

Keyboard Needs Cleaning ResampleThe great feature of the KSI-1801 SX cleanable keyboard, unlike other, so-called washable keyboards, is there’s no need to ever remove it from service to wash in a sink or dishwasher.  98% of all germs can be disinfected right at the desktop without downtime, without cable management issues, and most importantly, with the ability to have a healthy and clean typing surface anytime, anywhere!  Oh, did we mention that the KSI-1801 is also a backlit keyboard? Our antimicrobial keyboard is also multipurpose, offering three levels of illumination that is perfect for data entry where patient care requires a darkened environment.

By placing valuable analytic data in the right hands at the right time, the infection prevention team is empowered to efficiently focus resources on emerging trends in KSI-1801 SX B Illuminated Keys Resamplehospital-acquired infections and multiple drug resistant organisms that exist on keyboard surfaces.  Our LinkSmart® infection control keyboard system with San-a-Key® provides for a central data collection point to manage keyboard cleaning and the ability to set disinfection kill times for identified strains that are particularly virulent, before the keyboard goes back into service.

Considering the importance of infection control in the healthcare field, use of KSI San-a-Key® Healthcare Technology Analytics, in combination with the LinkSmart® keyboard, is one more tool in your arsenal to get ahead of and manage cross contamination at the clinical desktop.

A detachable USB cable makes for efficient cable management.
