Sanitise door handle

As a number of people passes, the risk of bacterial contamination is higher in public places such as schools, local hospitals, and some workplaces. One way that publics keep their body from the germs is by washing and sanitising their hands before entering into other places. However, it would be hard to clean hands every time.
So, by using the behavior evidence of entering to another place, combined with the door handle and Sanitiser, user can sanitise their hands without consciousness. When you wanted to enter the new place, grab the door handle to open door, it would be automatically sanitized your hands before you know.
