Defender / Handle

Defender
Defender

We design a handle to show the degree of the hygiene. In the hospital, there are thousands of people coming in and out, people won’t even notice if the door handles are clean or not. The main concept of the design is making people easy enough to judge the handle is clean or not by simply seeing the appearance of the handle.
In addition, by its sensing function, it will start automatically doing ultra-violet disinfection once people come close. Besides the signal on the handle letting people easy to tell the cleanliness, it also shows the sterilization process. After all, keep your hands clean is the first step to stay healthy.
