SteriType recyclable mobile phone sleeves aim at improving infection control in high risk areas.
The sleeves are manufactured from durable polyethylene with in-built SteriTouch antibacterial protection, which reduces the growth of harmful organisms such as MRSA and E.Coli. They are fully recyclable yet robust enough to withstand heavy use.
Many studies have shown that our mobile phone touchscreens are dirtier than a public toilet seat, so it’s easy to see why they are regarded as a contamination hotspot in high-risk areas such as hospitals. Despite many hospitals having a ‘no phones on duty’ rule for staff, the fact remains that this is often ignored, and this is where antimicrobial phone sleeves can bridge the gap.
While the sleeves were designed for frontline hospital workers, they are also a useful option for visitors and any other workers in a hygiene sensitive environment, who can continue to use their mobile phones without the risk of cross contamination.
