Sanitizing Door Handle Keeps Doctors Germ-Free [Video]
The PullClean hospital door device doubles as a hand sanitizer and gives real-time feedback about how "clean" the staff is.
Hospital door handles are one of the many points of contact that can contribute to the spread of viruses and cause infections in medical settings. Hospital Acquired Infections are a real threat and the one logical solution to prevent them is for people to clean or sanitize their hands regularly. Cleaning and sanitizing stations are common in hospitals but they require staff to stop what they’re doing and they end up not being used enough. British studio Agency of Design worked with Altitude Medical to design a simple solution that incorporates sanitizing into the regular flow of staff’s daily work.
