Seal Shield Launches World's First Dishwasher Safe TV Remote Controls
Healthcare company introduces New Waterproof Remote Controls at the CES Consumer Electronics Show (Sands booth#74021)
Jacksonville, FL January 8, 2009 /PRNewswire/ — Seal Shield LLC today announced two new SEAL SHIELD™ Waterproof Remote Controls for TV and home theater. The products are the world's first remote controls to be fully submersible, dishwasher safe and antimicrobial.
University of Arizona professor Charles Gerba recently conducted a study that found TV remote controls are the highest carrier of bacteria in hospital rooms. "Remote controls have three times greater levels of bacteria than any other site in hospital rooms," Gerba said. "I suspect hotels also suffer a bit from bacteria transfer via remote controls. Common colds, flu's and MRSA (staph bacteria) can survive on surfaces such as remote controls for up to three days."
SEAL SHIELD™ TV Remotes are easy to clean. Regular cleaning in the sink or dishwasher can help prevent the spread of germs, viruses and bacteria, which are known to harbor on frequently touched surfaces. SEAL SHIELD™ TV Remotes are compatible with all major electronics brands and offer an ideal solution for hospitals, hotels and home theater. Additionally, the unique waterproof characteristics make the SEAL SHIELD™ Remotes the only solution for less traditional locations such as the kitchen, bath, pool or spa.
The SEAL SHIELD™ TV Remote is an easy to use, TV only, remote control which has been optimized for hospitals and hotels. The easy wipe surface makes it simple to clean with a disinfectant wipe, but what makes the SEAL SHIELD™ TV Remote special is that it is fully submersible, antimicrobial and dishwasher safe. Suggested retail price is $29.99 US.
The SEAL SHIELD™ Home Theater Remote is a full function, back lit, touch screen remote that is fully submersible, antimicrobial and dishwasher safe. It offers easy control of all home theater devices in an attractive, ergonomic design. The SEAL SHIELD Home Theater Remote is designed for the serious movie aficionado, but it is priced for consumers at $49.99 US.
