In an effort to make physical interactions in public restrooms more sanitary, many devices have been replaced with motion-controlled sensors that initiate actions. From flushing a toilet, to dispensing paper towels, a quick wave of the hand, does away with having to touch potentially dirty surfaces.

A similar product has been released by Sanidoor — which is just as it sounds, a motion-controlled door which minimizes user contact with restroom door handles.

Though first released five years ago, the product has only been used significantly in the Florida area. The new version of the Sanidoor is expected to sell more units, as it’s significantly smaller and less expensive.
