Palmero Healthcare, Stratford, Conn, a Hu-Friedy subsidiary, now offers the Palmero Tablet Barrier Sleeve to protect portable, touchscreen tablet devices.
The single-use disposable sleeves are designed to mitigate cross-contamination of harmful pathogens, thus providing infection prevention. In addition, use of the sleeves minimizes disinfection requirements, protecting equipment from repeated use of harmful chemicals.
According to the company, the sleeves fit comfortably over a tablet with or without a case. They are compatible with full or mini Apple iPads and tablets.
Made of a non-latex material that does not impede touchscreen operations, the sleeve has an adhesive on the flap to securely hold the tablet inside.
