NextInput Brings Technological Innovation to Mitigate Spread of COVID-19

MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif.–NextInput, Inc., the leader in MEMS-based sensing solutions, today announced it has production-ready solutions to help mitigate the spread of the COVID-19 virus, and other hazardous contaminants, through the handling of medical devices.

One of the major issues hospitals face is the difficulty to quickly sterilize equipment between uses. From hospital beds to all types of monitoring equipment, simply cleaning with antiseptic wipes or UV lighting may miss virus populations that have migrated into the ingress surrounding the button controls and touch display. NextInput’s gapless sensing solutions allow hermetically sealed surfaces to be easily sterilized and rapidly redeployed to support the needs of the next patient without the risk of cross contamination.

“COVID-19 has negatively impacted our global community and we want to be part of the greater solution,” says Ali Foughi, NextInput CEO and Founder. “The NextInput team has developed gapless solutions that are ideal for hospitals and any medical equipment needing sterilization. This goes beyond hospitals to other public surfaces such as an elevator keypad. We are ready to support manufacturers with our gapless and material agnostic solutions.”
