Seal Shields protect iPhones, iPads from germs


LAS VEGAS — An iPhone and iPad waterproofing solution that offers antimicrobial product protection has hit the market.

Seal Shields are form-fitting, polyurethane covers that make iPhones and iPads 100% waterproof, washable and disinfectable, according to the product's manufacturer. The product, which is completely invisible and preserves the original Apple design, contains an antimicrobial fungistatic agent that protects the product by inhibiting the growth of microbial bacteria, mold, mildew and fungi on the products' surfaces.

"Our healthcare customers are using more touchscreen devices and they are demanding solutions which not only protect those products from scratches, but also from harmful bacteria and viruses," Seal Shield CEO Bradley Whitchurch said. "Seal Shields allow practitioners to wash and disinfect their touch screen devices, protecting the healthcare workers and their patients from infection."

Seal Shields are priced from $19.99 and are available worldwide through major retailers and distributors for iPhone4, iPhone4s, and iPad2.
