When Viruses (Including H1N1) and Bacteria are as Close as your Fingertips; VirWall's New Innovation Can Disarm Killer Keyboards
Date:11/17/2009

pathogens may be more virulent and patients are less able to ward off such infections.

"Anywhere you have shared computers," explains VirWall's President/CEO, Donald S. Hetzel, PhD, "you also have shared germs. When people eat near their computers, the problem is compounded. Bacteria love to feed and breed on our crumbs."

The VirWall KBS-1 is a lightweight, high tech lid that fits over a standard-size keyboard and uses 254-260 nanometers of UV-C wavelength to deactivate potential pathogens. The sanitizer provides uniform coverage in killing microbes, unlike disinfectant sprays and wipes that are user-dependent. The invention recently earned a medal for innovation in healthcare devices and the Yankee "Green" Award for its ability to kill germs with a novel mechanism that avoids the use of chemical disinfectants which some believe to pose environmental damage over time.

The sanitizer will retail for about $100. VirWall also holds patents for a portfolio of additional protective products including a bio-waste sanitizer/receptacle; a pen sanitizer for use at retail checkouts; and a smart-phone recharger/sanitizer.

"That keyboard in front of you is far more than a keyboard," explains Dr. Roberts. "It's a germ factory that can cause a relentless series of illnesses and infections. The good news is that some simple precautions can neutralize its potential to sicken."

(Dr. Roberts is senior partner with The Marbury Law Group in Reston, VA; Dr. Donald Hetzel, PhD, is the former head of R&D for several multinational pharmaceutical companies.)
