28th September 2010 Design Gets Prescribed For Medical Products

DesignEdge and Devlin have designed a unique, totally sealed keyboard for use in the most sensitive areas of hospital and medical environments. Not only has it been designed to reduce the chances of MRSA being passed through the sharing of keyboards, it has also been designed to look good and be as user-friendly as possible.

Devlin’s MD Martin Baker explains: “By bringing in outside designers we were able to introduce an aesthetically pleasing concept and not just a purely functional design. The product features four newly patented inventions and we wanted to reflect the fact that this was something different from everything on the market. We showed the keyboard at CeBIT, people really responded to the look of the keyboard as a way of giving hospitals a friendlier and less austere image.”
