Madentec CEO receives University of Alberta Achievement Award

EDMONTON, Oct. 1 /CNW/ - Randy Marsden, CEO of Madentec Limited and Cleankeys Inc. of Edmonton received the Alumni Honor Award at the 2009 Alumni Recognition Awards for the University of Alberta. The Awards celebrate the outstanding achievements of Alumni who have brought honor to themselves and the school.

Marsden founded Madentec in 1989 as a student graduate of the U of A. The company's assistive technology products have help thousands of people with physical disabilities use computers to enhance their lives. In addition to founding the company, Marsden has served on numerous Boards and Advisory Committees related to disabilities technology, including recently serving as an advisor to US Federal Government lawmakers.

Madentec's most recent invention is an aseptic keyboard called Cleankeys. It can be cleaned and disinfected in less than 10 seconds. Recent potential pandemic pathogens such as H1N1 emphasize the need for products that reduce the risk of infection, particularly for common touch surfaces like a keyboard. Cleankeys will have a significant impact on controlling infection in hospitals, dental offices, and other healthcare settings.

"This tremendous honor speaks to Randy's industry leadership, experience and results" says company President Don McCormick. "It reflects on all employees in the company. We are very proud."

"Receiving this award is truly an honor for me." said Marsden. "I owe my entire career to the start I got at the University of Alberta, and feel like the honor should be going the other direction."

The awards take place from 5:00pm to 7:30pm at the Winspear Center on October 1st, 2009. Those interested in attending should RSVP to:
