Everyone Should Keep a Low Profile

Man & Machine’s new generation of hygienic, silicone keyboards have a lower profile than ever before. The keys of Man & Machine’s new Really Cool Low Profile Keyboard have been flattened so that they can be cleaned with a single wipe. However, the keyboard is not completely flat. To facilitate touch typing and to maintain real tactile feedback, a slight elevation has been retained. According to the company, typing on the keyboard has the feel of typing on a laptop.

The Really Cool Low Profile has been designed for use in a healthcare setting. It is completely sealed and impervious to fluids and particles, it can be disinfected and meets all the requirements for electrical safety relating to medical use. It comes with a 10 year warranty.

“We are always looking to push out the boundaries of what is possible in making keyboards easily & thoroughly cleanable without sacrificing their usability. You have to be able to work comfortably with them”, says Euro Chief Geraldien de Louwere Schasfoort.

The Really Cool Low Profile is available in UK English, US English, French, German, Nordic and Swiss keyboard layouts. Man & Machine is launching the Really Cool Low Profile at Smart Healthcare Live, the UK’s leading event for Healthcare ICT taking place in London’s ExCel Centre, 14-15 June 2011.
