There is a New Category of Screen Protection Coming Your Way

     Apple, Microsoft and Samsung have sure made things complicated. The innovative products that they manufacture have taken over our lives and seem to be able to do anything- except be cleaned. Apple advises against using “window cleaners, household cleaners, compressed air, aerosol sprays, solvents, ammonia, abrasives, or cleaners containing hydrogen peroxide to clean an iPad.” Using such cleaning products typically damage the screens and can make them very foggy. Microsoft and Samsung don’t offer much better options. 

     The tech companies’ stance on the matter has allowed people to mistakenly believe that just wiping a screen down with a damp cloth will effectively prevent the spread of infections, but this just isn’t true. The CDC estimates that there are 1.7 million people getting healthcare-acquired infections per year, with almost a hundred thousand fatalities. Clearly, there are preventative measures being overlooked.

     Healthcare faces a tremendous amount of accountability when people develop an infection while getting treatment. The steps necessary to prevent these infections can be a bit more than organizations are initially willing to spend. But the annual cost to hospitals for healthcare-acquired infections is tens of billions of dollars annually. It seems likely that a preventive approach can end up saving a lot of money in the long run.

     So what do you do when mobile devices are facilitating transmission of infections and even commonly contain fecal matter? You protect your screen and you protect yourself. Since the big tech manufacturers aren’t making devices that can be cleaned according to health standards, it’s imperative to get a screen solution that allows you to do that.

     One solution worth looking into is the latest development from Seal Shield, an Infection Solutions company. Seal Shield’s Seal Screen are medical grade and custom-made screen protectors for your devices. It’s a completely new category of screen protection. They feature antimicrobial product protection which helps reduce microbial growth on the screen surface. They also allow you to clean your device with the products that will actually kill bacteria and prevent spread of infections. They not only can fit on any conventional device such as a Galaxy phone or an iPad, but they can be custom fit to a specific patient monitor or literally any device that has a screen. In an era where everyone has a bacteria magnet in their pocket, this may be the best way to combat it.
